Across the campus of the University of Wisconsin-Madison, simple, yet powerful symbols of hope and help can be found. They’re in dining halls and dorms, classrooms and labs, sports facilities and student unions.
Lime green bandanas, tied to the backpacks of students, faculty and staff, represent that the wearer is carrying mental health awareness and suicide prevention resource cards, and it’s all thanks to The Bandana Project.
