    reissa_decena_riverside "Active Minds challenged me to think creatively about ways in which the issues of mental health can be embodied and presented relevantly to college students. In the process of helping draft projects which have a basis in mental health topics, I have become more informed about these topics - as well as the specific student body that is our target audience."
