Wacky Wednesday- What's Your Big Lie?
Start Date: 10/11/2017Start Time: 2:00 PM

Event Description:


What are you hiding from the world?  We all live a lie that determines how we present ourselves to our friends, family, colleagues, and community. In our digital era, it is especially easy to display one version of ourselves while reality is quite different. Once we realize, we are not alone, we can create a 'culture of belonging", where people feel like they can accept themselves and others as they are.

 Let's talk about the things we don’t normally talk about

It’s scary but true… 1 in 12 college students make a suicide plan. 1 of 4 have suicidal thoughts. 1 of 3 have long periods of depression. 1 of 2 say their mental health is poor. And 2 of 3 who need support don’t get it. Wild, right? 

Using our phones and a 100% anonymous technology platform, we’ll submit what we hide from everyone, and what we’re struggling with. In real-time, the responses are then filtered and projected onto a screen for the entire audience to absorb. 

We want to helps students to support each other, and catalyze a shift on campus towards inclusivity and acceptance. Because when we believe we aren’t alone, we have the strength to support others and own our own pain.

FREE and open to the public
