Active Minds is a national organization targeted at reducing the stigma around mental illness on college campuses. It is about finding support and raising awareness about the services available. It is not a support group, nor do we provide medical services, but rather direct the population to seek help and be more aware of the services available on campus. Alison Malmon, a college student at UPenn, created this organization following the suicide of her younger brother, Brian, also a college student. Her hope was to combat the stigma of mental illness, encourage students who need help to seek it early and prevent future tragedies like the one her family experienced. It grew into a national organization, with the headquarters in Washington, DC. There are over 350 campus chapters nationwide. Our meetings are Thursdays at 8pm in Wilson 205. Feel free to come even if you haven't been before!
