Cowley Activity Awareness Team involved with Suicide Awareness Month

With February being Suicide Awareness Month, Cowley College’s Cowley Activity Awareness Team (CAAT) has laid out 182 backpacks in the Calder Bonfy Amphitheatre to represent the college-aged lives lost to suicide each year in Kansas.

According to the Center for Disease Control, suicide is the third leading cause of death for young people from the ages of 10-24.

CAAT will be making this awareness campaign a regular event every February and hope that by bringing more awareness to Cowley College’s campus, more lives will be saved and more resources for help will be utilized.
