About Break the Hold Organization

The BTH organization is committed to “Break the Hold” on mental illness and provide education about suicide prevention.

Our Mission is suicide prevention. We build resilience and reduce the risk of suicide through education, advocacy and raised awareness about depression and other mental health challenges. Our program is focused on teaching Dialectical Behavior Therapy (DBT), which is evidence-based training for emotional regulation. DBT uses mindfulness strategies to manage emotions, increasing a persons tolerance to negative emotions.

Thank you for supporting Break the Hold. We are a program under the umbrella of The Mental Health Association of Westchester (MHA). MHA is a 501(c)(3) organization. Donations are tax deductible to the extent allowed by law. TAX ID#:  13-1740002
