Semicolon Week 2019
Sunday, March 24th - Saturday, March 30th
"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 conversation starts here and now. This is not the end of your story, but it's only the start. With the semicolon, know that your sentence will continue. The purpose of Semicolon Week is very simple. Rather than standing idle and allowing the story to end with a period, we're here to work towards continuance with the stroke of a semicolon. Be it self care or self-advocacy, Semicolon Week focuses on continuing stories and providing the resources that we can capitalize on to push forward. 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).
