The Mental Health Committee works to raise awareness on various mental health issues and combat stigma through discussions, events, and proposals for change. Mental health is important and applicable to everyone. Understanding that stigmas exist from various backgrounds and creating safe spaces for conversation is core to the committee. Normally, mental health is only mentioned when faced with the aftermath of an extreme tragedy or when it becomes convenient to do so. This is why MHC's advocacy efforts are centered on destigmatizing mental health, connecting students to both on and off-campus resources, and relaying feedback and opinions from students to administration. MHC has and continues to host and partner on events, work on proposals (such as the Wellness Days Petition), and more. For more information, check out our website here.
