Programs for High School Students
High school students are more eager than ever before to empower their communities and peers to have the conversation about mental health. High school youth are change agents in their schools and communities and Active Minds supports them through chapter programming, direct-to-youth resources, and student leadership training. These programs are designed to give students research-informed and easily accessible mental health resources to topics that are important to them.
Active Minds chapters are student-led, school-based groups that lead conversation, culture change, and advocacy throughout their communities.
Fueled by student voices, Your Voice Is Your Power Resource Hub provides youth with information about issues such as perfectionism, academic anxiety, and much more. This hub also connects students to skill development tools so that they can feel more empowered to lead.
Mental Health Advocacy Academy
The Active Minds Mental Health Advocacy Academy is a unique and paid opportunity that equips young BIPOC and LGBTQ+ leaders with the skills needed to engage in mental health advocacy, civic leadership, and political engagement.
The Active Minds Peer-Powered Mental Health Curriculum for High Schools is created to provide students with the tools needed to facilitate the conversation about mental health with their peers in their classrooms or during after-school activities.
