National Day Without Stigma is a program of Active Minds that falls during Mental Health Awareness Week (October 4-10, 2015).
Active Minds at Ball State University is spreading positive messages about mental health and how we all need to be a part of reducing the shame people feel in seeking help.
Active Minds’ nationally recognized suicide awareness exhibit, Send Silence Packing, will be kicking off at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana on Monday September 14th. The display features 1,100 backpacks, representing the number of college students who die by suicide each year. Later that day the Ball State University Active Minds Chapter will host Global Speaker and Author Kevin Briggs.
A few details:
Dear Ball State University Freshmen,
If you’re like most of us, you may have already felt some level of stress before arriving at BSU. Adjusting to a new environment is difficult and should not be overlooked; many of us struggled to make friends, let go of our home life, and excel in our classes during freshman year or when we first arrived on campus
