Hey guys! Active Minds, an organization that focuses on promoting a positive conversation about mental health on campus is looking for an additional EXECUTIVE BOARD member: Membership Development & Campus Liaison Position.
Active Minds brings pet therapy to campus, gives out resources like the Suicide Prevention Lifeline phone number, and gives out the cute "laugh more" buttons you see on backpacks.
Serving this position would look amazing on a resume and is LOW COMMITMENT! All you'd need is to come to meetings with great ideas and a positive attitude! This is especially good for people looking to go into counseling, psychiatry, psychology, social work.
Application is due November 27th.
1,100 college students die by suicide each year.

We are adding a new event to our Mental Health Awareness Week this year! This is a great opportunity for you to share your story, either anonymously or yourself, it is up to you! We will be coming out with a promotion video soon to highlight this event and we hope to see you all there! Information on how to be a part of this wonderful night is in the "about" section of the event page.
We hear that 1 in 4 people are affected by mental illness, yet there is still stigma surrounding mental health issues. It is important to share the facts, but one of the best ways to reduce stigma is through human connection. To help bring awareness and acceptance, Active Minds is hosting a monologue night during Mental Health Awareness week on Wednesday, March 30th, for people to share their mental health stories. Stories come in many different forms and we would love to hear them all. Submit your own story or come to the event and hear the voices that so often go unheard.
