Speech Outweighs Silence

Speech Outweighs Silence

In recognition of National Suicide Prevention Week, hundreds of backpacks are being displayed on the Drill Field to represent college students who die from suicide each year across the nation. Several activities are planned this week to raise awareness about suicide, connect students to mental health resources and promote action for suicide prevention. Among those working to promote mental health awareness at Mississippi State are the Department of Health Promotion and Wellness, Student Counseling Services, and the Student Association, along with the Living for Tomorrow and Active Minds campus organizations.
