WABI reports on Fresh Check Day
WABI (Channel 5) covered Fresh Check Day at the University of Maine. At the event, which featured interactive exhibits, food, prizes and giveaways, the campus community “checked in” on the mental health and wellness of college students. “One in 10 college-age students comtemplate suicide,” said Kayla Goodwin, a graduate assistant at the UMaine Counseling Center. By connecting with students regularly, she said the center can do more prevention work.
