Join the Conversation
Active Minds is changing the conversation about mental health. We strive to reduce stigma because seeking help is a sign of strength and not something to be ashamed of.
For the Fall 2021 semester, we plan to meet in person, with an option to join via Zoom. Watch the announcements for specific dates/times. All are welcome (students, faculty, and staff).
If you are interested in getting involved, please contact the Active Minds Advisor, Andrea Kurtz, at email@example.com.
Next meeting: Thursday, October 7, 2021, at noon in Ewens Center, 1st floor Caroline Hall. Everyone is welcome (undergraduate/graduate students, faculty, staff, and administration). Bring your friends!

Friends of Active Minds
Check out our friends, WE ARE SAATH Milwaukee
WE ARE SAATH Milwaukee is a nonprofit organization and social movement about Mental Health awareness in the South Asian community that's similar to Active Minds. After successfully launching at Marquette University, they would like to include more people across Milwaukee.
Their mission is to increase access to mental health resources for the South Asian community through education, activism, and storytelling. Their events include meaningful dialogues, de-stressors, social activities, guest speakers, and more. They do NOT provide any kind of healthcare services.
All are welcome regardless of background. Feel free to visit their Instagram or Facebook pages to see more. Anyone interested in getting involved or has questions can contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org.
