By creating a Team Active Minds fundraiser, you are telling the people in your life that their mental health matters and deserves support. 

The ‘Team Active Minds Challenge’ means challenging yourself and your community to change the conversation around mental health, asking them to support Active Minds, and together changing the culture in order to save lives. 

Help us empower others to talk openly about their mental health and seek help by taking the Team Active Minds challenge in your own way.

Honor the life of a loved one…

Our founder, Alison Malmon, created Active Minds to build a legacy of hope after losing her brother, Brian. It inspired her to challenge the way we view and talk about mental health.

The Active Minds community is made up of dedicated advocates who want to ensure no one ever feels alone in their struggles with mental health.

When you create a Legacy of Hope fundraiser in memory of a loved one, you are remembering their life and carrying with you their legacy and our shared mission to change the way people talk about mental health and support one another.
