How It All Began

Shattered Studios was formed almost a decade ago to address the troubling growth of depression, low self-esteem, and suicidal thoughts among young people. The need to help youth and young adults is great indeed. But the need to also inspire and communicate with young people using "their language" (meaning methods that are engaging, relevant, and that they can relate to) is also great.

That is why Shattered Studios has invested a lot of time and resources into finding new ways to share hope and faith with young people using technology and the arts - because we truly believe this is the "language" of today's youth. From games, to music, podcasts, comics, dance, drama, and more - these are the forms of media that most of our youth are impacted and inspired by today.

So our team has taken on the challenge of creating and equipping others to use these forms of art and media to really encourage young people around the world.

Shattered Studios is an umbrella organization that contains three divisions: Shattered Ink (Production), Shattered Silence (Mentorship), and Shattered Walls (Collaboration).


The Center for Disease Control (CDC) in the U.S. has recently updated their statistics to reflect that when you focus in on young people ages 10 - 24 years old, suicide then becomes the 2nd leading cause of death.
