Amy Bleuel, founder of Project Semicolon, dies at 31

A Green Bay woman who helped thousands across the world join the conversation about mental health has died.

Amy Bleuel started Project Semicolon, a non profit to help people talk about mental illness.

She started the project after she lost her father to suicide.

The project includes a signature semicolon tattoos on the  wrist to signify that life goes on after a suicide attempt or another's suicide.

A cause of death has not yet been reported.

Family and friends pay their respects at the Pfotenhauer Funeral Home and Cremation Service at 2379 East Mason Street in Green Bay from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon on Saturday, April 1, 2017. A service will follow. Online condolences are welcome at www.PfotenhauerFuneralHome.com.
