"a nonprofit organization that empowers students to speak honestly and candidly about mental health to educate others and encourage people to seek help. The group works to create and support student-run chapters on college campuses. These campus chapters promote mental health awareness, advocacy, and education at colleges throughout the country. Active Minds aims to make students aware of mental health issues, provide information and resources about mental health and mental illness, and encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed. The chapters offer students training and leadership opportunities as well as serve as a liaison between students and the mental health community. One of the goals of Active Minds is to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues. They try to achieve this through campus-wide events, national programs, and by creating an inviting environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses nationwide."
"With a presence at more than 800 campuses, schools, communities, and workplaces each year, we’re reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, creating communities of support, and saving lives." Active Minds reached 1.8 million people nationwide last year alone.
