Penn College Wildcats, along with other student-athletes throughout the North Eastern Athletic Conference, helped promote Thursday’s World Mental Health Day by destigmatizing issues surrounding personal well-being and calling attention to suicide prevention and other support resources. Student Athlete Advisory Committee members throughout the conference placed green pinwheels at their respective colleges, and – with the help of an information table facilitated by Community Peer Educators – engaged their classmates to create greater awareness.
