Schedule of Events 


Monday 3/25, Wednesday 3/27 and Friday 3/29: Get a FREE Pill Box - 12pm - 3pm at Cascade Foyer in the Plemmons Student Union

Western Youth Network will be tabling and giving out pill boxes to students. Pill boxes are small lock boxes where you can keep your medication, so that people you live with can't get into your medicine. Locking up your pills can help prevent drug abuse and overdose, and make App State a safer campus for all. Stop by Cascades Foyer in the student union to get your box!



Wednesday 3/27: y(OUR) Story - 8pm in the Blue Ridge Ballrooms (PSU 201AB) 

y(OUR) Story is a collaborative production hosted by Wellness and Prevention Services. Through partnering with actors, dancers, painters, poets and other artists, true mental health stories submitted by those in our community will be shared. Your story is (our) story. 



Thursday 3/29: Pill Collection Day - 10am - 3pm at Cascades Foyer in the Plemmons Student Union
