ACTIVE MINDS AT JEFFERSON COLLEGE

There are no dues to join Active Minds. You can join us at any point during the year and we are at both the Hillsboro and Arnold campuses. We meet monthly and sponsor fun activities throughout the year such as the Zombie Apocalypse (Human vs Zombie game), Stomp Out Stigma, Suicide Prevention, Got Consent?, Take Back the Night and Operation Beautiful. We are very supportive of “r u ok?” campus events also.

Active Minds is the leading nonprofit organization that empowers students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help-seeking.  We are changing the culture on campuses and in the community by providing information, leadership opportunities and advocacy training to the next generation.

By developing and supporting chapters of a student-run mental health awareness, education, and advocacy group on campuses nationwide, the nonprofit organization works to increase students’ awareness of mental health issues, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, encourage students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serve as liaison between students and the mental health community.

Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues, and create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses nationwide.  Visit www.activeminds.org.
