Active Minds

The purpose of Active Minds is to utilize the student voice to change the conversation about mental health on campus. Our mission is to provide mental health education and advocacy in an effort to increase students' awareness of mental health issues. Our organization accomplishes out mission by providing both students and the community with information and resources regarding mental health. We also encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and we serve as a liaison between students and the mental health community. Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues, and to create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues.
