Guest Speaker Sara Lowery

259

On Tuesday, September 14th join us in welcoming guest speaker Sara Lowery presenting a conversation on “Shining a Light on Mental Darkness”. As noted by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health, nearly 1 in 5 university students are affected by depression and anxiety. Sara Lowery was one of those students. In this personal keynote, Sara shares her story in hopes that students can learn how to reach out for support during those dark times and search for the light. Students will learn their intrinsic value and strategies to fighting through the feeling of disappointment, fear, and yes even loneliness. Sara will challenge students to really look around to not only find someone whom they can lean on, but also who might need help finding their mental light. This discussion will take place at 7PM in the Derryberry Hall Auditorium and is presented by the Student Government Association Mental Health Matters Initiative.
