On May 9th, Southern Columbia was awash in green as the school community united to stage a Green Out Day to promote mental health awareness. Students and staff wore green shirts and engaged in a variety of activities all designed to erase the stigma of mental illness and to show support for family, friends, classmates, staff, and community members who are affected by mental health struggles.

Students created informational posters to help erase the stigma of mental illness. The Green Out Day also introduced students and staff to the benefits of stress-reducing activities such as yoga, walking, and visiting with therapy dogs.
