Mission
Empower and educate communities on mental health and wellness

Vision
To be a world leader on erasing the stigma and educating communities on mental wellness through Community Conversations, Wellness Trainings, compelling content, and outreach programs.

About
Silence the Shame, Inc. is a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating mental health stigma, reducing health disparities, and improving rates of suicide among vulnerable populations. Through community conversations, compelling content, and culturally responsive programs, we aim to normalize the conversation, peel back the layers of shame, and promote mental wellness for vulnerable and disparate population groups, including Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ+), individuals in high-stress jobs, older adults and rural communities. Silence the Shame was branded to eliminate the shame and stigma of mental health challenges.

History
Established as The Hip-Hop Professional Foundation, the organization gained momentum quickly when Silence the Shame was launched as an anti-stigma mental health awareness campaign. STS Founder Shanti Das partnered with influencers and celebrities through social media to bring awareness to mental health and the impact of stigma. With this momentum, the organization moved to change the Hip-Hop Professional Foundation's name to Silence the Shame, Inc. to maintain branding and engage donors.

In 2019, STS expanded mental health education programming and outreach programs to address poverty, youth development, and health disparities among Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) and Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer or Questioning (LGBTQ+).

STS has designed several program models to launch 2021-2023, including The Soundtrack of Mental Health (STMH). With the support of Sony Music Group, The STMH offers a wide range of workshops for self-care, including coping techniques, stress and anxiety management, and a wellness curriculum for artists, creatives, and executives in the music industry. The program also offers Mental Health First Aid USA (MHFA) and Question, Persuade and Refer (QPR) Suicide Prevention Training.
