Together, We Are, Tony's Tribe
We are a non-profit 501 (c)(3) community involvement and awareness organization geared towards breaking the stereotypes and stigmas of challenges many teens and young adults face today. We are focused towards creating a community of like minded teens and young adults who have faced social, mental health and economic challenges. We work to support those struggling to fit into today's society with the ultimate goal of embracing differences and breaking stigmas.
Tony's Tribe is a program within Breaking the Barriers which tells the story of Anthony "Tony" Garcia and the suicide loss survivors he has left behind. Tony was the son and brother of the founders of Breaking the Barriers. He struggled with mental health issues since his late teens and in January 2018 he lost his battle with depression to suicide. Upon his suicide his loved ones were left devastated and struggling to find their footing and therein amongst the loss and sorrow Tony's Tribe was born. They decided to take his story and use it to raise awareness and work to remove the stigma surrounding mental health issues; work to educate people on the warning signs of suicide and also inform people as to what they can do to reach out for help. They hope that through him and his story many others may live.
