AUniver­sity of Den­ver stu­dent Tuesday walks past back­packs that are part of the “Send Si­lence Pack­ing” trav­el­ing ex­hi­bi­tion at the Driscoll Stu­dent Cen­ter. The dis­play fea­tures more than 1,100 back­packs rep­re­sent­ing stu­dents lost to sui­cide each year. Most of the back­packs are adorned with pho­tos of those who killed them­selves and per­sonal mes­sages from fam­ily and friends. The dis­play pro­motes sui­cide aware­ness and pre­ven­tion and of­fers in­sight into men­tal health dis­or­ders.
