The counseling center at the University of Utah has inundated the campus with thousands of handwritten notes in an effort to raise awareness about mental health problems, the Daily Utah Chronicle reports. Not exactly an uplifting exercise in campus litter: One letter reads, "I can't believe life is so hard. I've tried and tried and tried, but no matter what I do, I feel so overwhelmed by the little things, sometimes the big things. The weight is crushing me." The epistolary publicity stunt has roused the sympathy of at least one student, who tells the Chronicle, "I just feel bad for whoever had to write out 8,000 of them."
