Meet Lee Duffy-Ledbetter. He’s the coordinator of Send Silence Packing, Active Minds’ traveling exhibit of 1,100 backpacks, representing the number of college students who die by suicide each year. In just a few short weeks, the spring SSP tour will kick off and travel to 12 states throughout the south.
But before that happens, we wanted to introduce you to the guy who runs one of Active Minds’ most popular programs:
Lee first became involved with SSP in 2014. Prior to working at Active Minds, Lee studied economics at George Mason University; he also spent time volunteering with a local mental health support group. It was during this time that Lee developed a passion for starting the conversation about mental health with young adults.
