frameworks for student mobilization and mental health

identify areas of growth, reduce stigma, and create communities of support

Over the last 15 years, we’ve learned that empowering students is the most effective way to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health, create communities of support, and ultimately save lives – and now there’s a study that proves it.

A landmark longitudinal study conducted by the RAND Corporation demonstrates the power of Active Minds’ unique peer-to-peer approach to increase students’ mental health knowledge, attitudes, and help-seeking behaviors.

Fill out the form below to download our Frameworks for Student Mobilization for Mental Health. The PDF includes a “Framework for Staff, Faculty, and Administration” as well as a “Framework for Students.”

The frameworks will support campuses in replicating the success demonstrated by the study and change the conversation around mental health. Students, faculty, staff, and administrators can use these frameworks to assess their own mental health promotion efforts and identify areas for growth.

We look forward to working with you!
