Alex Chessen, MONTANA 2014, took his own life on Jan. 8, 2013, and since then, his parents, Bruce and Karen Chessen, have been advocating mental health awareness and suicide prevention to the masses in hopes of saving the lives of others.
Keller Zibilich, LOUISIANA STATE 2015, made five emergency phone calls in the minutes before taking his life. His story reminds us to reach out if we are feeling overwhelmed or depressed, and by going to Sigma Chi Lifeline, there will be someone there to listen.
