Send Silence Packing

Monday May 1st 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Kafadar Commons (ceremony @ 4pm)

For more that a decade the Send Silence Packing exhibit has traveled the country to end the silence that surrounds mental illness and suicide. This award winning program now comes to Mines with its messages of hope and help.

This event includes personal stories from people who have lost a loved one to suicide. While it is not the intent to evoke distress, we caution that exposure to this display may be triggering for some people. For this reason, there will be mental health professionals and resources available throughout the entire event. 

Final Friday

The Final Friday – Let’s Chat series was designed for Graduate Students to create a greater sense of community at Mines.  Events will take place on the final Friday of each month* that include an engaging activity, relevant resources, free food and giveaways.  We encourage you to attend! *Some exceptions may apply due to holidays
