J&R Schugel shows support during Mental Health Awareness Month

Post Date - May 24, 2021

To support Mental Health Awareness Month in May, J&R Schugel Trucking wraps a Kenworth T680 semi-truck to support the cause and promote awareness.

“We are living in unprecedented times and many are facing challenges that can be stressful, overwhelming and emotionally draining” says, Dan Denhof President/CEO. J&R Schugel chose to wrap a truck surrounding a topic that has had an impact on so many individuals and their families.

“This is our third truck wrap and it was inspired by the unique times we have all experienced over the last year and most importantly brought the topic of mental health awareness to all of us at Schugel. At J&R Schugel Trucking, our employees want to encourage those who are dealing with mental health issues and help reduce the stigma that may be associated with seeking help,” Denhof adds.

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 these numbers have only grown due to the COVID19 pandemic.

J&R Schugel plans to assign the unit to one of their professional truck drivers in the near future.
