Offered by Mason CARES and The Roosevelt Institute. The Encouragement Wall is a creation of The Roosevelt Institute, a student think tank at George Mason University. The wall is a freestanding piece of interactive art and call to action (inspired by The Courage Wall done by artist Nancy Belmont). It is a symbol and tangible display of a community’s genuine desire to promote mental well-being. It gives students an opportunity to actively help encourage one another by writing anonymous encouragement in a public space. Mental illness is something that every college student struggles with-whether it is diagnosed or not. Anxiety, stress, and depression are all issues we should be aware of. By increasing awareness we can combat the problem and create a more uplifting and encouraging culture. #RooEncouragement
Come join us at the event and chalk up encouraging messages on our giant board for display!
