Project Semicolon

11391153_1108312695849074_2520447163825930671_nThe 2015 Mental Health Awareness Week starts next Monday, July through Friday, July 17th. According to Davey Hoen of the Independent Journal Review, if in your travels, you see someone with a semicolon on their body, here’s what it really means – Project Semicolon

“The goal of the project is to restore hope and confidence in people who are troubled by addiction, depression, self-harm, and suicide. The non-profit encourages these people to draw or tattoo a semicolon on their wrist. The semicolon symbolizes that the difficulties they face are not the end but a new beginning. The symbolism of the semicolon is explained on Project Semicolon’s website, “A semicolon is used when an author could’ve chosen to end their sentence, but chose not to. The author is you and the sentence is your life.” By encouraging people to share their marks and stories, Project Semicolon seeks to instill hope and open up a dialogue about mental health.” – Davey Hoen
