Out of the Darkness 

This year CSI will help organize and run the Out of the Darkness walk here at UNI.  

Out of the Darkness raises awareness and funding for suicide research and prevention.  We will be organizing a committee who will work with Christy Kessens (an adjunct at UNI) to plan the event.  The responsibilities will include raising community awareness and participation, recruiting local sponsors, organizing walk day events, and more!  The event will be take place this spring.  

If you are interested in this unique opportunity for leadership and advocacy please email and attend the general meeting to get more information or to be a part of the committee!

Mental Health Institute visit scheduled for November 14
CSI has scheduled a trip to the Mental Health Institute in Independence.  

A few of us visited MHI last spring and learned so much about mental health services in Iowa.  We are excited to offer the opportunity to visit MHI again this fall!  Our group is scheduled to visit MHI on Friday, November 14 at 1pm.  The tour takes between 1-2 hours.  This is a FREE tour of MHI open to all students and anyone you know who would be interested in this opportunity.  

We will send an email and do sign-ups at the general meeting to coordinate potential car pools.  Make sure to mark your calendar for this great opportunity!
