Messages of Hope - Digital Exhibit and Block M Installation 
Monday, 4/18 - Sunday, 5/1
Once again U-M Library is pleased to partner with Counseling and Psychological Services to promote their Messages of Hope campaign. The intention of the campaign is to promote awareness about mental illness, exam time stress, and student suicide via inspirational messages spread throughout campus.
This year we feature the physical Block M Messages of Hope Installation in the Shapiro Lobby, where students can write inspirational messages to each other on small wooden tiles, take a tile, leave a tile, hang them on the Block M, or hang them elsewhere on campus.

We also feature U-M campus's only digital version of Messages of Hope on the Shapiro Screens, where students in the Lobby can see inspirational messages on the screens as they cram for final exams.
