breakingFree is an innovative mental health charity that educates and encourages people to live mentally healthy lifestyles, in order to prevent mental illness and improve mental health.  We focus on teaching people how to make mentally healthy choices, how to form mentally healthy habits and to how to develop a mentally healthy mindset; as well as breaking down the stigma often attached to mental illness and encouraging people to seek help early.

At breakingFree our primary activity is giving mental health presentations and running mental health programs at schools, universities and businesses, aimed at teaching people how to be more mentally healthy.  In essence, we are an educational platform, whose objective is to provide people with the knowledge, tools , techniques, ongoing resources and motivation, so that they can improve their mental health and happiness.  We strongly believe that prevention, by teaching people how to be mentally healthy, is the best approach to the increasing rates of mental illness within society.    

As well as our comprehensive mental health presentations and programs, we also have a strong online presence and make available the information we teach and the resources we provide on this website, our free phone app and our innovative online mental health course.  Finally, we run a number of mental health and lifestyle awareness events/activities throughout each year.

breakingFree is starting a movement by educating and encouraging people to base decisions and their lifestyle around what is best for their mental health.


Our Mission = To reduce the number of people who experience and lose their lives to mental illness each year, and to improve the overall well being and happiness within society.
