Be Aware, Show You Care: Field of Memories

The Field of Memories-Be Aware Show You Care Flag Exhibit is a powerful and poignant visual display representing the 1,100 suicides that occur on U. S. college campuses each year. Students participate in the event by personalizing a flag to show their support, their increased awareness; or to honor a memory of someone lost to suicide.

Students can read the messages on the flags or stop by the table, pick up a flag and share a message of hope to help someone who may be struggling with depression and/ or who may be completing suicide. This exhibit represented hope and healing.  To see examples of past FOM events, click the following links: FOM 2019; FOM 2017;  FOM 2011.

Active Minds

Active Minds is the only organization working to utilize the student voice to change the conversation about mental health on college campuses. By developing and supporting chapters of a student-run mental health awareness, education, and advocacy group on campuses, the organization works to increase students’ awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve as liaison between students and the mental health community.
