Send Silence Packing, an impactful display of about 1,000 backpacks, is designed to inspire action for suicide prevention through education and advocacy. Volunteers will provide information about the display to individuals walking through the exhibit. In addition, they will direct students to information tables to learn about mental health resources on campus and in our community and connect individuals with clinical staff if support is needed. Volunteers will stand at entrance points, providing information on alternative routes around the display for individuals who do not wish to walk through the exhibit. If you are interested in volunteering please sign up using this form.
