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.

Working closley with our local community has helped us grow as a charity that people trust, turn too and promote as our journey to our end goal continues. We provide everyone with 24 hour crisis support and document our own mental health journey’s on The Original Superstar Blog.

It is free for everyone who attends and you will be greeted with a smile and a tea/coffee.

Meet new friends and learn a new skill - even if you already know how to crochet we would love to hear from you 🙂** 4 Week Crochet Workshop **

We are excited to announce our first facilitated course at the ZGBTST Workshop.

Held during our usual Wednesday scheduled Creative Corner from 12pm - 3pm for the next 4 weeks - we are going to be hosting a Crochet Workshop taught by the lovely Ann.

As part of our aims to decrease loneliness, increase participation of individuals and promote the aspect of togetherness and safety we are hoping to have people from the community join us every Wednesday to learn a new skill and make new friends.
