• Mental Health Club

     

    Our club’s goal is to be a starting place for people who are struggling with their mental health to go to receive support. Our club isn't trying to replace professional help and it not a therapy club. We want to be a place for students to talk and connect with others so that they don’t feel alone and be able to break the stigma.

     

    We focus on:

    • Stigma: reducing it and trying to correct the thought that people need to stay silent about their struggles and that they are going through it alone.

    • Resources: They will be available for students at every meeting, no matter what we are talking about or what our activity is that day.

    • Support: we are not trying to replace professional help. Our goal is to be there for every student and help them create connections with outside resources or simply other peers that can make them feel like they are less alone when struggling with their mental health.

    • Strategies: We want to provide strategies through activities to help members cope with whatever they are going through in their personal life.

     

    Mental health is important to talk about because it affects every aspect of a person's life. So many of us deal with it every day and staying silent just makes the problem worse. Join us to give a voice to this invisible illness and fight the stigma.
