Active Minds is the only organization working to utilize the student voice to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues and create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on the KSU campus. We are involved in increasing students’ awareness of mental health issues, providing information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, encouraging students to seek help as soon as it is needed, and serving as liaison between students and the mental health community.
