At Providence College, Student-Led Mental Health Group Battles Stigma of Mental Illness
PROVIDENCE – When she enrolled at Providence College in 2014, Cassandra Caggiano was eager to share many things about herself with her new acquaintances.

“When you move in freshman year, you don’t go up to your roommate and say ‘Hey I’m Cassandra, I live with OCD and anxiety,’ you know what I mean?”
Her good friend Colleen Andersen knows what she means.
