Active Minds at UNC-Asheville

Active Minds at UNC-Asheville Active Minds, Inc. is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising mental health awareness among college students, on the peer level.

Active Minds is a organization committed to changing the conversation about mental health. It advocates to dismantle the stigma of mental illness and promote awareness of such issues through events on campus and in the community. The UNC-Asheville chapter seeks to create a community that fosters conversation about current events in mental health and what we can do as students to help those in need and raise awareness about these issues.

Mission: Active Minds empowers college 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.

"Those who have PTSD know that covering up trauma doesn’t make it go away — and that it’s not uncommon for trauma from your past to affect you later in life. Flowers said getting into counseling and getting a name for what was going on helped his wife."

“What people don’t realize about suicide is that it’s like you’re brainwashed. None of my attempts made sense, but it feels like the perfect answer to make the pain stop in the moment. You think it will all be better if you can just disappear.”

Hats off to USA Today for elevating these powerful stories.

Please read & share. #mentalhealth #stopstigma
