Let's Break the Shame

Let’s Break the Shame was founded in early 2019 with the purpose of breaking the shame and stigma around mental health topics. 5 months later, there are 41 stories online on Instagram, with over 1000 followers. After realizing the success of the Instagram campaign, I decided to take on more projects together with people who had joined the campaign already.

Let’s Break the Shame X Depression is the first event of numerous that will follow. There will be 3 speakers this evening. All of them have, unfortunately, been in touch with depression and will tell you what helped them make it a bit more bearable or what made them beat depression. The aim is to change society’s perspections of depression, such as: “You’re not in bed all day, so you’re not depressed”, while at the same time helping other people to deal with depression and giving them some space to talk about it and ask questions.
