Jacob

Patient Leader

Jacob Moore is a filmmaker, public speaker & founder of NoStigmas.org, a global peer support network for mental health and suicide prevention. After losing his father to suicide at age 6, Jacob grew up plagued by debilitating anxiety and depression. Ashamed, he became an expert at hiding his mental illness for over 20 years. This practice cost Jacob countless jobs, numerous relationships, his home and very nearly his life. Hitting rock bottom after landing in jail, he finally discovered the power of peer support. Jacob created NoStigmas in 2011 as a place where people could connect, share their story and learn about mental health without feeling alone. Jacob lives in Los Angeles. Ø
