Becker College Starts New Active Minds Chapter to Raise Awareness on Mental Health Issues on Campus
At the suggestion of Wendy Miles, PhD, director of counseling services at Becker College, and Kerri Augusto, PhD, Becker psychology professor, the college has started a new chapter of Active Minds. Active Minds is the nation’s only peer-to-peer organization dedicated to raising awareness about mental health among college students. The organization serves as the young adult voice in mental health advocacy in more than one hundred college campuses nationwide.
For their first activity, the club assisted counseling services with the annual mental health screening on campus, and also recently held a coffee house to hand out information about eating disorders and healthy eating.
The next meeting of Active Minds is Wednesday, Nov. 12, in the Becker College Academic Center at 1:30 p.m.
