Help us reach our goal of 11,000 hand prints! This event is a collaboration between Student Counseling Services and Active Minds. We are creating a community mental health art piece. The concept behind the art piece is to spell out the word HOPE in all caps on a canvas spread (painted black). Then, we will have people place hand prints in the outline of the word HOPE so that we create a “finding the hope in the darkness” type of piece. Our goal will be to collect 1.1k hand prints because that is the unfortunate average number of college students who die by suicide each year. The colors will be a variety because hope isn’t the same color for everyone.
