Students Lead the Way in Mental Health

The Active Minds club at MVC is a campus chapter of Active Minds, the nation's leading nonprofit organization promoting mental health awareness and education for young adults. Together, we can change the conversation about mental health. The Active Minds Club collaborates with MVC's Wellness Center to promote mental wellness and suicide prevention.

We believe no one should have to struggle alone. By empowering young adults to speak openly about mental health, we can reduce stigma, encourage help seeking, and prevent suicides.
