Propeller Project

Propeller Project Logo

The Propeller Project is a mental health awareness and suicide prevention campaign at Newman University. The goal is to educate the NU community about campus support and services. Members of the Propeller Project are certified in mental health first aid and provide resources to students, staff, and faculty. NU community members that have a propeller sign outside their office door, on their email signature, or a propeller button, will listen and provide mental health support to those who ask for assistance.
