AEVIDUM TRAINING
Aevidum, “I’ve got your back,” training will be held 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 19, in 250 McFarland Student Union. Aevidum is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, which started by students after the suicide of a classmate. “The Talk” is Aevidum’s signature in-university kickoff platform. At the core of the program is the idea that while universities do talk through many key issues affecting their youth populations, many lack an important conversation, “The Talk,” about mental health and suicide. Faculty support is needed for training and assistance to run the club. Please contact Patricia Brenner for more information and your reserved spot at this training at Brenner@kutztown.edu.
