Active Minds at Lesley University is a student group dedicated to increasing mental health awareness on campus.

Part of a network of over 450 student-led Active Minds chapters across the country, our Lesley chapter is excited to announce that Send Silence Packing® will be coming to Doble Campus on Monday, October 2nd from 9:00am-4:00pm.

Send Silence Packing® is an exhibit of 1,100 backpacks representing the number of college student lives lost to suicide each year. Active Minds, Inc. has collected, and continues to collect, backpacks and personal stories in memory or in honor of loved ones impacted by suicide. By displaying backpacks with personal stories of loved ones that put a “face” to lives lost to suicide, Send Silence Packing carries the message that preventing suicide is not just about lowering statistics, but also about saving the lives of students.

For more information, contact Lesley's Active Minds co-presidents A. Olivia Jarvis at ajarvis2@lesley.edu and Rachel Digangi at rdigangi@lesley.edu or the group at activeminds@lesley.edu.
