Students Advocate Against Mental Health Stigma

Contributed by: Jake Griffin
Published: Wednesday, 26 August 2015 1:00 PM

Active Minds’ nationally recognized suicide awareness exhibit, Send Silence Packing, will be kicking off at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana on Monday September 14th. The display features 1,100 backpacks, representing the number of college students who die by suicide each year. Later that day the Ball State University Active Minds Chapter will host Global Speaker and Author Kevin Briggs.

A few details:

  • Send Silence Packing backpacks have been donated in memory of loved ones who have died by suicide, putting a face to the lives lost and highlighting the severity of suicide among college students.
  • In Oct. 2014, a Send Silence Packing stop was featured on NBC Nightly News highlighting the importance of eliminating the stigma of mental illness.
  • Send Silence Packing was unveiled on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. in 2008, with a keynote speech by The Honorable Patrick Kennedy.
  • Kevin Briggs, former California Highway Patrol officer, spent many years patrolling San Francisco’s Golden Gate Bridge where he encountered numerous individuals clinging to life by a thread. His personal story of physical and mental health challenges including recovery, military service, surviving the suicide of a loved one, divorce and depression will be a great compliment to the Send Silence Packing program.

            Dear Ball State University Freshmen,

            If you’re like most of us, you may have already felt some level of stress before arriving at BSU. Adjusting to a new environment is difficult and should not be overlooked; many of us struggled to make friends, let go of our home life, and excel in our classes during freshman year or when we first arrived on campus
