Mines Sends Silence Packing

May 1, 2019 @ 9:00 am - 4:30 pm


For more than 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.

  • Support PACKs (Personal Aid Crisis Kits): 9am – 12pm in Student Center Plaza
  • Backpack Dedication Ceremony: 4 – 4:30pm

If you or someone you know struggles with thoughts of suicide, please reach out for help. You are not alone. 24/7 Colorado Crisis Support Line: 844-493-8255

*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.
