As a survivor of her brother's suicide and an activist in suicide prevention who has been invited to the White House for talks and on stage at the Grammy's this year, Spencer-Thomas has knowledge in a variety of challenging topics. She will leave everyone in the audience with a roadmap to their specific journey through resilience so all can apply this information to their personal lives.

To Write Love on Her arms is teaming up with the Psychology Club/Psi Chi, the Association of Holistic Wellness and the Neuroscience Club with goals of spreading resilience through the Boulder community. The event is planned for this time because finals are approaching as well as spring break and a general lack of motivation.
