Active Minds

There have been many recent efforts to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. Mental health activists and those interested in changing the conversation about the subject will find the organization Active Minds not only intriguing, but crucial in combating negative associations common in discussions of mental health. Founded by Alison Malmon, Active Minds welcomes all, but specifically aims to provide help for anyone "suffering in silence." The site offers an immense variety of resources, ranging from statistics, up-to-date news, and tips regarding mental health, many of which can be found by clicking "Resources." Some of the current offerings include recommendations for "Healthy Socializing Post-COVID" and "Coping with the New Normal." The site also lists numerous programs enacted on college and university campuses, in communities, and at workplaces to bring awareness to the topic, and provides the option for donations. Readers who want to get more involved can participate in the "For You Pledge," which is a commitment to continue the conversation about mental health beyond the site. Active Minds is a 501(c)(3) charitable organization, with funding from numerous sponsors who can be found in the "Partners" section. Follow the organization on Facebook and Snapchat (@activemindsinc on both), or on Twitter and Instagram (@active_minds on both).
