MUW hosts To Write Love on Her Arms House Tour
COLUMBUS, Miss. -- On Monday, March 29th, Mississippi University for Women will host its first To Write Love on Her Arms (TWLOHA) House Tour. The event will be held at 7 p.m. in the W Room of Hogarth Student Center.
TWLOHA is a non-profit movement dedicated to presenting hope and finding help for people struggling with depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide. TWLOHA exists to encourage, inform, inspire and also to invest directly into treatment and recovery.
Students, faculty, staff and community members are invited to gather for a night of lyrics and conversation led by Chad Moses, a representative from the TWLOHA organization. Traveling with Moses will be Damion Suomi, Andy Zipf and Lauris Vidal to share their lyrics of pain, hope and redemption.
MUW Counseling Services and TWLOHA hope participants will find this event as a safe place to speak about the topics of depression, addiction, self-injury and suicide and that students will leave with a since of hope that they are not alone and their story matters.
In January, MUW became home to a TWLOHA UChapter. UChapters exist at nearly 30 universities across the country. Through communicating with other schools and with mental health professionals, TWLOHA UChapters are pushing for change and are inviting students to become part of a community that believes hope is real and rescue is possible.
