Send Silence Packing is an award-winning exhibit of 1,100 donated backpacks and personal stories representing the number of college students lost to suicide every year.

Join us in starting a dialogue about suicide and encouraging everyone to reach out for help before it is too late.

Suicide claims the lives of more than 1,100 college students each year. UNT and Active Minds, Inc. are looking to change that.

The exhibit will be held at the Library Mall from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on March 23.

A Health and Wellness Expo including Active Minds, the Denton County United Way, UNT Counseling and Testing Services, Substance Abuse Resource Center, Meadows Health and Wellness Center, and the UNT Survivor Advocate will occur simultaneously.

Active Minds is currently looking for group and individual volunteers to help set up, take down and staff the display.
