Our Mission

We Are The Rebellion

take a stand against depression and suicide

Garret Sinagra

The Suicide Rebellion is a memorial foundation in honor of the lead singer of The Whiskey Rebellion, Garret Sinagra, who lost his life to suicide in the early morning hours of July 16th, 2015

Break The Silence
End The Struggle

The research we have supported thus far in the Pittsburgh area is innovative and unlike any done in the past. Donations made to The Suicide Rebellion directly benefit the reseach of University of Pittsburgh and UPMC researcher and psychiatrist Dr. Lisa Pan. Dr. Pan and her colleagues are breaking ground on previously unexplored underlying causes and subsequent treatments for patients suffering from suicidal tendencies. We want to help shed light on this information and support more research of its kind. Make a donation today and help end the struggle for those suffering with depression.

The Suicide Rebellion thanks you for your generosity and support in helping to end the war against depression and suicide.

Every life deserves a tomorrow.
