Send Silence Packing, Active Minds’ traveling suicide prevention exhibit, hit the road this week for its Spring 2016 tour throughout the South. The first stop: Auburn University on March 31!
Although the display was relocated to an indoor location due to rain, hundreds of students still made it to the exhibit of 1,100 backpacks, representing the number of college students who die by suicide each year.
Take a look at some of the #SendSilencePacking photos from yesterday’s display that were shared on Instagram!

If you’re in the area, be sure to stop by the Campus Recreation Center between 9-4pm at Auburn University to visit the display. #suicideprevention #ssproadstafftravels

He will always be a member of the Auburn family and his legacy and passion for raising awareness about mental health will continue on through the Send Silence Packing display, located in the Rec Center. #sendsilencepacking #mww2016 #reasonsispeak
