Are you using proper plastrboard fixings (curly type) also you could try a plasterboard anchor fixings that opens up in the wall distributing the weight.

Glue it in place, modern silicone sealers do the job fine provided there is a pedestal underneath, if it is ahang alone basin glue in a wood bearer ,wait to set then fix to that.
