Jacob Moore

Patient Leader

Jacob Moore is a filmmaker, speaker & founder of NoStigmas, 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 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 and learn about mental health without feeling alone. Jacob splits his time between Los Angeles and the open road. Ø
