J&R Schugel Trucking supports mental health | News, Sports, Jobs
NEW ULM – J&R Schugel Trucking unveiled a newly packed truck in support of Mental Health Awareness Month.
The Kenworth T680 semi truck wrapped in a black and green color scheme and sported the mental health awareness ribbon.
“We are living in unprecedented times and many face challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming and emotionally draining.” Dan Denhof, President / CEO said.
J&R Schugel chose to wrap a truck around a topic that touched many people and their families.
“This is our third truck wrap and it was inspired by the unique moments we have all experienced over the past year and most importantly we all brought up the subject of mental health awareness at Schugel. . Denhoff said.
“At J&R Schugel Trucking, our employees want to encourage those struggling with mental health issues and help reduce the stigma that can be associated with seeking help,” Denhof said.
The truck with the mental health stickers will travel the country. It is hoped that many will see the vehicle and know they are taken care of.
According to the National Institute of Mental Health, research shows that mental illnesses are common in the United States, affecting tens of millions of people each year and that these numbers have only increased due to the COVID19 pandemic.
J&R Schugel plans to hand over the unit to one of its professional truck drivers in the near future. The National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, Crisis Text Line can be reached by texting NAMI at 741-741 or the National Domestic Violence Hotline at 800-799-7233.
