Christina Tolete wrote -We are the VCU chapter of Active Minds, a nationwide organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma associated with mental illness. We know that mental health issues face thousands of students everyday, and we are committed to doing everything we can on campus to bring attention and respect to the cause. While not everyone has mental illnesses, everyone has mental health. Throughout each semester we hold several events that bring awareness to mental health. In order for us to hold these important events we need funds for the supplies and speakers. Your donation would be a great help in our mission to educate our community, especially college students, on mental health issues and eradicating the stigmas associated with mental health illness.
