Active Minds is a national leader for young adult mental health advocacy and suicide prevention. It was founded by Alison Malmon at the University of Pennsylvania following the suicide of her older brother, Brian, in 2000. Alison saw that Brian’s story was not unique; thousands of people just like her brother suffer in silence because they believe they are totally alone. Since its beginning, Active Minds has worked to transform the conversation around mental health across college campuses in order to fight the stigma surrounding it. The international organization is now 450+ chapters strong and is on more than 600 campuses. Here at UCONN, our chapter dedicates itself to outreach and advocacy through campus awareness campaigns and events. We seek to bring mental health into the open so no one struggles alone.
