What to Expect
Active Minds at UofSC is a student run, non-profit organization that promotes mental health awareness, education, and advocacy. The group is designed to utilize peer outreach in conjunction with the Counseling and Psychiatry Center to increase students awareness of mental health issues and symptoms of mental illness, provide information about available resources, encourage students to seek help as soon as help is needed, and to serve as a liaison between students and the mental health community. By promoting awareness and education, the Active Minds UofSC chapter aims to reduce stigma that surrounds mental illness and create an open environment for discussion of mental health issues.
