Ever feel like life is more than you can handle? Or feel so alone? Or that no one really understands you? No matter how hard it may seem when DARK moments take over your life, LIGHT is always around the corner. It may not be immediate, but with time LIGHT will appear and those dark moments will begin to fade away.
As noted by the Center for Collegiate Mental Health, nearly 1 in 5 university students are affected by depression and anxiety. Sara Lowery was one of those students. In this personal keynote, Sara shares her story in hopes that students can learn how to reach out for support during those dark times and search for the light. Students will learn their intrinsic value and strategies to fighting through the feeling of disappointment, fear, and yes even loneliness. Sara will challenge students to really look around to not only find someone whom they can lean on, but also who might need help finding their mental light.
