Suicide Prevention Month - Send Silence Packing

Dr. Holloway, Shannon Long, Devyn Walker and Becky Rush went to TCU campus to view their display for Suicide Prevention Month. 


"the TCU campus commons was filled with over 1000 backpacks, snagging attention to the normally pristine lawn.

This was an exhibit to “Send Silence Packing”–there was one book bag for each of the 1,100 college students who dies in an average year from suicide. Interspersed with the packs were signs reading facts and messages of hope, most importantly that every person is loved and no ones is alone. Students had the opportunity to engage with this exhibit all day, as many stopped in memory and reflection, took pictures, and made time to walk around the commons to read the signs."
