  • Brandy Hunter from Active Minds at University of Memphis says:

    brandy_hunter_-_u_of_memphis"Words can’t express the impact that Active Minds has had on me personally and professionally...I have learned to work with a wide range of people, and I have learned more about mental health issues in the past two years than I believe I ever would have if I hadn’t become a member of Active Minds. Most of all, my work with Active Minds has enabled me to openly discuss my own mental health issues."
