Description: Fresh Check Day will be hosted by the University Counseling Center on Thursday September 23rd, 2021 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Fresh Check Day is an uplifting, mental health promotion and suicide prevention event that will include interactive expo-booths, peer-to-peer messaging, support of multiple campus departments and groups, free food, entertainment, and exciting prizes and giveaways. Fresh Check Day, which is founded by the Jordan Porco Foundation, takes place on college campuses across the nation. There are four main goals Fresh Check Day will accomplish on WIUís campus. These goals include: increasing student awareness of mental health resources available to them, reducing stigma and misconceptions around mental health and suicide which often deter individuals from seeking help, empowering WIU students to be gatekeepers by understanding warning signs and knowing what to do if a friend is exhibiting signs of suicide or a mental health concern, and increasing studentsí willingness to ask for help if they are experiencing emotional distress.
