Appalachian State “Hosts Semicolon Week”

Story by: Christina Beals

“A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. That author is you and the sentence is your life.”
-Project Semicolon

The premise is that this simple and commonly used symbol shows support and promotes awareness of mental health and suicide. Your story continues. Semicolon Week partners include: Alpha Gamma Omega Fraternity, American Foundation for Suicide Prevention – NC Chapter, Counseling and Psychological Services, Mental Health Ambassadors, Student Government Association, Wellness Educators for Change, Advocacy, and student Needs (WE CAN). Contact Elisabeth Cavallaro, Coordinator for Student Mental Wellness,  at cavallaroe@appstate.edu for questions.”
