27 Mar Zombie Gives Back: Active Minds
Active Minds at USC is a student run non-profit organization that promotes mental health awareness, education, and advocacy. The group is designed to utilize peer outreach in conjunction with the counseling center to increase students’ awareness of mental health issues and symptoms of mental illness, provide information about available resources, encourage students to seek help as soon as help is needed, and to serve as a liaison between students and the mental health community. By promoting awareness and education, Active Minds at USC aims to reduce stigma that surrounds mental illness and create an open environment for discussion of mental health issues.
