Sigma Pi at Cal Poly to Host Suicide Awareness Week


I loved reading this article today about Sigma Pi at Cal Poly hosting their first Suicide Awareness Week on campus. Mental health is something that we don’t talk often enough on college campuses, especially within men’s groups. The number of instances of mental health issues has been climbing, and our fraternities/sororities are in the best position to catch the warning signs before tragedy sets in.

Also, the way that the Sigma Pi chapter is setting up the entire week with events is especially effective in building awareness at the University. I frequently see a one night event on campus that is over quickly, but this schedule will reinforce the importance of the issue and give lots of students different ways to process the information and react. Congratulations brothers.
