Active Minds Panel

Monday, February 25th, 2013

Active Minds is a new club dedicated to raising awareness and confronting mental health issues on campus, and they’re holding their first event on Wednesday.

The event is an open panel for people struggling with stress and mental illness, and will feature Andrew Molteni, a clinical psychologist in Skidmore’s Psych Department; the director of Skidmore’s Counseling Center; and various student representatives  with experiences dealing with various mental health issues.

There will also be “baked goods” which could really mean anything. Delicious homemade cookies or a box of fucking Entenmann’s, who knows?

Active Minds Interest Meeting Tonight

Wednesday, January 30th, 2013

Active Minds is a national non-profit dedicated to raising awareness of mental health issues on college campuses, and a few intrepid students are looking to start a chapter here at Skidmore. According to their PR thing, Active Minds chapters “raise mental health awareness, promote positive mental health, educate their peers about the signs and symptoms of mental health disorders and encourage students to reach out for help when needed.”

This is pretty important stuff, given the shameful lack of attention paid to student mental health here at Skidmore, despite a 50% increase in demand for appointments with the Counseling Center in the last few years.

Email for more questions. We’re all neurotic clowns up here anyway.
