Active Minds

Active Minds 

Connect with other UCR students dealing with the same pressures we all have: relationships, body image issues, adjusting to college life, family pressures, and mental health struggles.  This nationally recognized student group is committed to changing the conversation about mental health at UCR by helping you feel your best and removing the stigma surrounding mental health.  They provide guest speakers, information tables, and outreach programs to help peers manage their mental health and find help when needed.  Ongoing events include Speed Friending, “A Day in the Life…” and the Therapy Fluffies.
