AEVIDUM
The National Alliance on Mental Illness, KU Chapter, and the Josh Johnson Sunshine Foundation sponsored an Aevidum training Oct. 19. Aevidum is a non-profit organization that focuses on raising awareness of mental health issues and suicide prevention while shattering the silence that is often associated with these issues. Aevidum transforms universities and communities by providing students with a platform to use their voices and talents as they pledge to look out for one another, have each other's backs and promote help-seeking. Arranged by KU student, Isaias Oviedo, and Dr.Brenner. Other student participants included: Vanessa Tocket, Megan Farner, Lauren Wszolek, Giovannie Estronza, Skeisy Taveras, Sam Burns and Lauren Szuter.
