A News & Record columnist profiled the work of Jamie Stephens, coordinator of outreach and peer education, and her efforts to raise suicide awareness among college students.

For Mental Health Awareness Month, Stephens arranged for 1,100 pinwheels to be placed near Elliott University Center. The pinwheels represent the number of college students who die by suicide each year. Stephens also hands out surveys outside of the center regarding wellness and talked to students to offer her support.
