Active Minds programs all contribute to our overall mission to increase student awareness of mental health, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, and encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed.  

Active Minds Programs are designed and developed at the National Office and implemented by our student chapters.  Programmatic materials and support are distributed to students as one of the many benefits of being an Active Minds chapter.  Most of the program ideas, however, come from the students themselves, through recommendations from our Student Advisory Committee and suggestions from Active Minds chapter leaders.   All Active Minds programs involve an evaluation component and are continually being strengthened and improved.  As we continue to grow as an organization, so do our programs.  Be sure to check back here regularly for updates and to learn about our newest programmatic efforts.

Nicole Kacmar from Active Minds at Stevenson University says:

 

nicole_kacmar_stevenson "Our chapter of Active Minds held its first successful National Day Without Stigma in the fall of 2009, and due to the success of this event, awareness in our school and the surrounding community has increased exponentially.  People stop our members on a daily basis and ask about our organization, hoping to become involved in raising awareness of mental health issues."
