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.
