Green Bandana Project

Ava Stockstad, Reporter September 21, 2022
When walking around campus, you may catch sight of a green bandana tied around a student’s backpack strap. This is not simply a new fashion statement, but instead a symbol of support and outreach. In fact, every student who is in possession of one of these UND-themed green bandanas has partaken in thorough training that has allowed them to learn what it means to be an ally to those struggling with their mental health. These bandanas serve as an outward expression of a student’s preparation and willingness to have vulnerable conversations surrounding mental health with their peers.
