Changing the conversation about mental health one Heel at a time

Active Minds is the nation’s premier nonprofit organization supporting mental health awareness and education for young adults.

Our projects increase students’ awareness of mental health conditions, provide information and resources regarding mental health and mental illness, encourage students to have conversations regarding their mental health, and serve as a liaison between students and the mental health community.

Through advocacy and awareness events, we seek to change the way mental health is talked about, cared for, and valued, especially on campus at UNC-Chapel Hill. It is our mission to build a strong community all with one goal in mind: open conversations about mental health.
