Send Silence Packing’ Exhibit Arrives at SBCC

A traveling exhibit of 1,100 backpacks (pictured above), representing the number of students who die each year by suicide, came to Santa Barbara City College on 9/20. Passersby were invited to walk among the exhibit, called Send Silence Packing, which featured memorial letters by friends and families. Organizers with Active Minds said the display is meant to open conversation and soften the stigma around mental health.
