The Active Minds Chapter

The Active Minds Chapter is a powerful force in the mental health movement. Students work to increase mental health awareness on campus, promote positive mental health, educate their peers about the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders, and encourage students to reach out for help when needed. Chapters play an important role in referring students to resources and starting conversations about this important topic.

Many members are students with an interest in mental health, such as psychology, nursing, pre-med, and social work. Some students are living with a mental health issue, including depression, bipolar disorder, anxiety, or an eating disorder. Others are friends or family of people who live with an issue or are survivors of a friend or family member’s suicide.

The Active Minds Chapter is open to any enrolled student.
