Here are the basics:
- Project semicolon supports the idea that authors use a semicolon when a sentence could have ended, but they chose to continue it. You are the author and the sentence is your life.
- Through the semicolon symbol many can relate to the struggles of depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide, but decide to commit to the will to carry on.
- The founder, Amy Bleuel is a motivational speaker and travels to educate others about mental illness and spread hope.
- If you have struggled or know anyone that has struggled with mental illness, this can be something that you might be able to relate to and spread awareness about.
NOTE: Project semicolon is not a crisis hotline, but it can be a resource for those interested in learning more about the campaign and how to get involved. Visit their website HERE.
