Active Minds is a student organization at Baylor University (and many other universities in the nation) in which students educate other students about mental health disorders by hosting different activities on campus (ex. puppy play day for depression month), as well as inviting speakers (clinicians, professors, etc.) to one of the two meetings we have each month. We hope that by changing the conversation about mental health, the stigma surrounding these issues will decrease and will encourage students that need help to seek it.
Each month we have a different focus:
September: Depression and Suicide
October: Anxiety and OCD
February: Eating Disorders
Our meetings take place on alternating weeks on Tuesdays at 5:30pm in the BSB.
We hope to see you at our meetings and thank you for stopping by!
