Have you ever struggled mentally or emotionally but felt too ashamed to reach out for help? You are not alone - 1 out of 5 adults will have a diagnosable mental illness in their lifetime.

Come participate in this presentation to discuss the importance of mental health and highlight how together we can change our campus community to be more supportive of your mental health!
