To Write Love on Her Arms founder to speak at Northwest

MARYVILLE, Mo. - Jaime Tworkowski, founder of To Write Love On Her Arms (TWLOHA), will speak to Northwest Missouri State University students about the importance of suicide prevention and depression at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 3, in the Mary Linn Auditorium of the Ron Houston Center for the Performing Arts.

To Write Love on Her Arms 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.

Student Activities Council Lecture Chairperson Angela Wasko said TWLOHA is an important organization to highlight because it speaks to a resonating topic.

"College students feel the impact of this topic," Wasko said. "Jaime not only relates to us, but he can bring insight on how to talk openly about it and seek treatment for it."

Student Activities Council's lecture committee plans and coordinated the lecture series for Northwest students and the Maryville community.

Entry to the event is free. Tickets are available at the Student Services Desk inside the first floor of the Administration Building.
