Institutionalized youth, specifically those who underwent Conversion Therapy, often leave institutions in worse condition than they went in. Instead of receiving care, these youth are traumatized, abused and neglected. GLBT youth are 4x more likely to commit suicide than their peers, and those that undergo Conversion Therapy are 6x more likely. It is estimated that 1 in 3 GLBT individuals undergo Conversion Therapy. To date, there is no rehabilitative support for this population, outside of legal and political campaigns. The population included in our work include survivors of religious cults, privatized "teen rehabs" (The Troubled Teen Industry) and religious institutions that endorse Conversion Therapy.
All survivors of Institutional Abuse are encouraged to reach out to receive help. Our mission is to reach as many survivors as we can, and provide services at no cost. By providing trained and licensed Clinicians, thorough and trauma-informed Lawyers, and a variety of Vocational Mentors for survivors of these horrific places, we hope to reroute the adolescent's trajectory. Instead of being a statistic, we hope to help survivors lead a healthy and functional life, instead of succumbing to the trauma endured. Youth have human rights, and we are here to advocate and provide care.
UnBroken is a software based concept that works with survivors of the Troubled Teen Industry and Institutional Abuse/Conversion Therapy. We provide trained therapists, vocational mentors and lawyers, nationally, to work with traumatized survivors at no cost to them. We are here to show that you are unbreakable.
