Yellow Tulip Project

The Yellow Tulip Project is about smashing the stigma around mental illness — one tulip at a time. Yellow tulips are a sign of hope. When groups and communities come together, plant a garden, get their hands dirty, and talk about mental illness, hope blooms.

As part of our Zero Suicide Committee’s efforts to acknowledge Mental Health Awareness Month, our staff worked to plant gardens at various Sweetser sites (Adult CSU Saco, Brick Building on the Saco Campus, Brunswick Office, Saco School).

Shout out to staff including Wendi Dubois, Jamie Baburek, Nick Blunier, Laurel Bailey, Kelly Marshall, Val MacDonald, Ashely Frazier, and Mark Laverriere.
