Active Minds Programs
Active Minds is a national organization with chapters on college campuses across the country. In addition to local events planned and run by our campus chapters, Active Minds offers to our chapters various national programs, along with programming guides and resources. These programs include:
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.
Samantha Sekulich from Active Minds at Lake Forest College says:
"I was always taught to stand up for myself regarding my mental health, but Active Minds has shown me how to stand up for mental health as a cause and it's something I will fight for the rest of my life!"
