With only 11 days remaining until Active Minds bring Send Silence Packing to the Morristown Green with the Mental Health Association of Morris County, not a lot of time is left! The event will run from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM and will include a display of 1,100 backpacks representing the 1,100 college students who lose their lives to suicide each year. There will be various speakers and activities throughout the day, so stop on by!
Among 18-24 year olds, the prevalence of serious psychological disorders is higher (18.6 percent) than all adults aged 18 or older; however, compared to older adults, the 18-24 year old age group shows the lowest rate of help-seeking behaviors.*
If you or someone you would like to get involved to volunteer with the event, please let Marissa Ferrito know and contact her by email at email@example.com or call her at (973) 334-3496, ext. 108.
