The West Valley Active Minds Club empowers students to change the perception about mental health on college campuses.
Active Minds is the leading nonprofit organization that empowers students to speak openly about mental health in order to educate others and encourage help-seeking. We are changing the culture on campuses and in the community by providing information, leadership opportunities and advocacy training to the next generation.
Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental health issues, and create a comfortable environment for an open conversation about mental health issues on campuses nationwide.
Please contact Student Health Services at wvc.health-servicesFREEWEST_VALLEY if you are interested in joining the West Valley Active Minds Chapter or would like more information.
