Changing the conversation about mental health

The Active Minds Oregon State Chapter is one of many student-run chapters of the national organization. By planning campus-wide events that promote awareness and education, our group aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and create a comfortable environment for open discussion of metal health issues.

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 on over one hundred college campuses nationwide.

Active Minds at OSU is not currently a chartered club. If you have a passion for mental health and would like to help start the club back up, please email Tessie Webster-Henry at or visit
