Erase the Stigma 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. The goal of Active Minds is to change the culture on campuses and in the community by providing information, leadership opportunities and advocacy training to the next generation. The Regis University chapter was founded over 11 years ago, and is exclusively led by students, for students, under the supervision of a licensed clinical psychologist within the Office of Counseling & Personal Development. We create events throughout the semester to spread awareness about mental health issues, erase the stigma surrounding mental health, and help students thrive in the academic environment. Some of our events include but are not limited to: art exhibitions showcasing how students channel mental health struggles into art, an “oasis” of relaxation to help students take a break during finals, “Love Letters” around Valentine’s Day, “Thankful Tree” to give thanks and express gratitude, and many more.
