Thanks to several students, Liz VanDurme '12, Producer; Alyssa Traitz '12, Cinematographer; Chloe Wilson '14, Production Assistant; and Cory Dahn '14, Editor, the event has been captured and posted for all the world to see.  Click here to take a look!

A special thanks to Active Minds at Ithaca College and all the students that contributed to the making of the video.

Remember, when it comes to suicide prevention, your voice matters!
