Never give up on someone with a mental illness. When “I” is replaced with “we,” illness becomes wellness. -Shannon L. Alder
River Community Wellness Program provides outpatient treatment to members of the community. One of the most difficult conditions we often encounter is Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. Our team is jumping in honor of those members of our community who are still suffering in silence. End the stigma against seeking help and give a voice to those who need it.
;IGY6 The meaning is: The semicolon is from Project Semicolon. When an author writes a sentence and is at the point of ending it, but wants to continue, they can use a semicolon. It creates a pause. Almost like a thought, a reconsideration of the cessation of a sentence, or in this case, your life. IGY6 stands for I Got Your Six (six o'clock, means back). So when you combine it all together, it is a way of saying that if you are thinking about taking your life, PAUSE, it is not time to end it, I got your back and will help you through it and stand by your side. If you ever see someone wearing it, know that they will help you.
