Last weekend, students from Emmanuel College's Psychology Club organized a benefit concert for Families for Depression Awareness. Aptly named Strum Against Depression, the event hosted several student and staff musicians who performed with their bands, a capella groups, and as soloists. The students held a raffle and offered attendants the chance to donate to the event. All proceeds have been donated to FFDA.
Our speaker Colin was able to share his story in honor of his brother, and reached many students who were interested in learning about depression—some were living with depression, themselves.
Thank you, Emmanuel College for giving us the chance to reach your students! We are lucky to be able to share our work with your students, as you offer us your gracious support.
