There are many Active Minds chapters all over the United States, you can learn more about Active Minds National here. We have general board meetings (Thursdays 1-2pm via Zoom) and outreaches that are meant to start those important conversations.

If you cannot make the meeting times, you can still participate in our outreaches that are normally at an earlier time in the day. Our club is open to all majors, the main requirement is to be curious and interested about mental health!
