Take Action

Our work is possible because of generous supporters like you.

Whether or not you are a college student, you can help support Active Minds and make a difference in students’ lives. We believe that all community members play a crucial role in creating a world where no one is afraid to talk about mental health.

With the help of our donors, partners and dedicated volunteers, we support more than 400 Active Minds chapters on university and college campuses nationwide – but our work is far from over.

There are many ways to be part of Active Minds:

  • Donate and Fundraise. You can make a general donation online or by mail. You can honor the memory of a friend or loved one by making a Memorial or Honorary donation. You can also give directly to any Active Minds chapter or donate non-cash gifts. Log in to MyActiveMinds.org to create your own fundraising page or donate today.
  • Active Minds Chapters. Find and join an Active Minds chapter on your campus. If your campus doesn’t have one, start a chapter today!

  • Michael Mannarino from Active Minds at Marquette University says:

    michael"Being involved with Active Minds and having the opportunity to start a chapter on my University's campus not only helped me in my lifelong journey in living with mental illness but also helped me in reaching out to others in hopes that we can begin to break down the stigma of mental illness and open up the dialogue so that no one else will ever have to live in darkness again."
