Active Minds

Pledge

Active Minds is an organization committed to empowering young adults to speak openly about mental health hoping to educate others and encourage them to seek help in an attempt to change the culture on campuses through leadership, information opportunities, and advocacy training. Active Minds pledges to share the 5 Signs of Suffering with at least 250,000 people over the next five years through their vibrant national network of campus chapters run by student and staff volunteers, hundreds of annual community and campus events, and growing social media and blog networks. By developing and supporting chapters of student-run mental health, advocacy groups on campuses nationwide, Active Minds will help change the story by increasing students’ awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, and encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed. They will have these advocates serve as liaisons between students and the mental health community. Further, Active Minds pledges to hold campus-wide events and national programs to remove the stigma surrounding mental issues hoping to create a comfortable environment for an open conversation on campuses nationwide.
