Welcome to the Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust (ZGBTST)


‘The Zachary Geddis Break The Silence Trust aims to bring more awareness to the community of Northern Ireland surrounding the topic of Mental Health and decrease the stigma surrounding Suicide.’

-Established in October 2017-

Dedicated to being the on-going voice of Zachary Geddis, who suffered with mental health issues from the age of 16. We aim to be the voice of those suffering in silence and to help those who believe they can no longer be helped.

We are a voluntary ran organisation, developed by the Geddis Family (Terry, Louise & Yasmin) to assist those in need across Northern Ireland and futher afield. Since establishment in 2017, we have become one of NI’s most respected and well-known grassroot charities.
