The Mission of Stop the Silence: Stop Child Sexual Abuse, Inc. (Stop the Silence) is to expose and stop child sexual abuse and help survivors heal worldwide. Our overarching Goals are to 1) promote CSA awareness, prevention, and healing; 2) stop child sexual abuse and related forms of violence; and 3) celebrate the lives of those healed. CSA is not one group’s problem; by expert accounts it is a silent pandemic throughout the United States and the world, creating havoc – for the affected children, the adult survivors, and the society. It can be prevented and treated with a conscious and sustained effort. Stop the Silence helps provide that effort.
PFLAG Canada is a national charitable organization, founded by parents who wished to help themselves and their family members understand and accept their non-heterosexual children. The "coming-out" process can be a critical time for families. When the adjustment period is particularly long or painful, relationships can become permanently damaged, resulting in a lifetime of emotional scars. People cannot always rise above the challenge of accepting themselves or their family member, and the results can be devastating, even fatal. We support these families through today, and give them hope for a better tomorrow.

In 2010, Glenn Close co-founded Bring Change to Mind (BC2M), a nonprofit organization built to start the conversation about mental health, and to raise awareness, understanding, and empathy. The idea for the organization resulted from Ms. Close’s first-hand observation of the battles with mental illness within her own family. Ms. Close’s sister, Jessie, successfully lives with bipolar disorder, and Jessie’s son, Calen, lives with schizoaffective disorder, and all three are actively involved in spreading the organization’s mission. BC2M develops influential public service announcements (PSAs); pilots evidence-based, peer-to-peer programs at the undergraduate and high school levels engaging students to eradicate stigma; and has created a social movement around change by providing people with platforms to share, connect, and learn. Because science is essential to achieving this mission, BC2M’s work is grounded in the latest research, evaluated for effectiveness, and shared with confidence. An integral component of this is BC2M’s Scientific Advisory Council, which is comprised of an acclaimed team of experts in the fields of stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness.
