MSU Sigma Chi fraternity crisis

Start Date: 2021-11-17

Description: HOPE was called to the Sigma Chi fraternity of Montana State University in Bozeman to help comfort chapter members after a violent suicide of one of their members just outside the fraternity. Mary set up the visit after a fraternity member's parent had contacted ITA; Nancy Dodd referred them to HOPE and Mary. The young men seemed very glad we were there and I believe Lamar provided comfort and stress relief. Mary and I had a chance to talk with a few members about their feelings, HOPE and their own dogs, also the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Sorority members brought food and stayed to pet Lamar and talk as well.

Agency: Sigma Chi fraternity
Teams: Gail Miller-Richardson and Lamar
