Sarah Herr graduated from Shippensburg in 2019 with a Major in Communication and Journalism and a Minor in Political Science. Currently, she works for Acadia Healthcare as a Treatment Placement Specialist. Through working in the behavioral health field and her own personal experiences, mental health awareness has always been a passion of hers. Herr believes that through education, awareness, and breaking down the barriers to treatment - we as a society can begin to shift the negative stigma surrounding suicide. Her goal is to shed light on the unique challenges marginalized groups in society face and be that voice for those who do not have one. As she continues to learn and grow professionally, Herr looks forward to spending her life working towards breaking down the stereotypes society has engrained on us surrounding mental health. Herr is okay with being that person to talk about the elephant in the room because discomfort is the catalyst for growth.
