Active Minds Student Org
Active Minds is a national leader for young adult mental health advocacy and suicide prevention. Headquartered in Washington, DC, Active Minds brings to mental health what no other organization can - the voice of young people who are disproportionately affected by mental illnesses and the way mental health is addressed on campuses and in society at large.
Now in its 15th year, Active Minds is at more than 600 colleges and high schools nationwide, including 450 student-led chapters. Our programs and services empower students to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, create communities of support, and ultimately save lives.
This student-to-student approach is unique to Active Minds and is one that works. Chapter members are at the heart of Active Minds’ innovative, student-to-student model, which addresses head-on the fact that 67% of young adults are more likely to seek help from a friend than anyone else.
