"Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all."

Straight from National Wesbite:

Active Minds is the only organization working to utilize the student voice to change the conversation about mental health on college campuses. By developing and supporting chapters of a student-run mental health awareness, education, and advocacy group on campuses, the organization works to increase students’ awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve as 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 create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses throughout North America.

Active Minds is open to all students. Those who are affected by mental illness in themeselves or in their friends/family members, as well as Psychology and pre-med majors, are especially welcome. Active Minds is devoted to raising awareness about many mental health issues affecting college students as well as communities. We appreciate diversity in thought and background-hoping all feel welcome to come and share their voice in this much-needed discussion starting all across the nation.
