Semicolon Week

Emotional wellness

"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.
