To Write Love on Her Arms
To Write Love on Her Arms is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury, and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire, and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery. College campuses are places of transition, and the difficult realities of transition are not often talked about openly, especially when they are associated with mental health. We believe that by giving these conversation a home on campuses across the county, we will see students choosing to continue living their story and helping those around them do the same.
What are our meetings like?
We plan events to spread awareness and hope for suicide prevention, mental health, and addiction. We talk about issues such as self-harm, addiction, depression, anxiety, and suicide, and what we can do to overcome these issues. We also discuss the meaning of words like love, joy, happiness, and what we can do to become aware of these positive attributes that exist inside of us. With each conversation comes an activity, game, snack, or some other form of expression.
What do we do?
We provide resources for people who need them, from peers in crisis to members with questions. We spread awareness and work to overcome the existing prejudices against people with similar issues. We also host events for people to come together in conversation about mental illness; UChapters is a movement of students committed to changing the statistics and building a community of honesty and hope.
