The culture of perfection that pervades today's college campuses is damaging to student mental wellness. According to the American College Health Association, 62% of college students report having felt “very lonely” within the past year. Suicide is now the second-leading cause of death among college-aged students.

The Reflect Organization was founded at the University of Pennsylvania to address this issue and has grown to become a national mental wellness nonprofit. Reflect’s college and university chapters are dedicated to empowering students to foster a culture of authenticity, self-love, and allyship on campus.

The latest developmental research has shown that with the right support, just one caring person can break the cycle of adversity in a young person's life. This lighting presentation will draw on this research, focusing on how each audience member can be that one caring person, forging a more resilient, well community.
