Send Silence Packing: Active Minds Interactive Exhibit on Mental Health

The Active Minds Club is bringing an interactive exhibit showcasing the importance of mental health dialogues and resources to our campus on Thursday, October 28th from 9 am-4 pm in the Coop.

This exhibit called Send Silence Packing aims to inspire action for suicide prevention, connect viewers to mental health resources, and jump-start action. By learning more about suicide, speaking out, and changing the conversation about mental health from one dominated by stigma and ignorance to one of support and understanding, we can all save lives. We hope that people who stop by the display learn how to support a friend or loved one who is struggling and that it’s okay to ask for help. We all have a role to play. More information can be found in this youtube video.

It is our most sincere hope that this event will promote the importance of suicide prevention and show the many resources available to those struggling with mental health problems, specifically suicidality. If you have time that day we encourage each of you to stop by the exhibit. If you have any questions or would like to get involved in this exhibit feel free to reach out to our Social Involvement Chair, Emma Hoesterey, at 914-787-9630! Or contact us at our email activeminds@colgate.edu.
