Rip The Stigma

About Us

Rip The Stigma, a non-profit organization founded in 2016 by Elise I. Antoine, is a grassroots movement encouraging individuals with mental health challenges to speak up and share their stories in order to peel off the stigma attached to mental health.  We provide mental health education, resources, support, and suicide prevention to individuals who are struggling with mental illness. We advocate for mental health awareness while creating a safe space in our society to share your stories and discuss suicide.

Rip The Stigma is a resource outlet to connect you to different services. To empathize, impact, and influence people, no matter of age, race, gender or sexual orientation.
