Through education, research, advocacy, and a focus on students and young adults ages 14–25, Active Minds is opening up the conversation about mental health and creating lasting change in the way mental health is talked about, cared for, and valued in the United States. To support the Active Minds mission, the Active Minds at RIC chapter is all about creating a campus culture that does not stigmatize mental health problems but rather speaks about them openly and supportively. Through various campus activities and events we intend to not only create a support network for those on campus struggling with mental illness but also to continuously educate and spread awareness regarding such issues.
