Hi everyone! My name is Ritu (she/hers/ her) and I am a fourth year doubling in Psychological Science and Public Health Policy with a Biological Sciences minor. I’m super excited to be one of the two Mental Health Commissioners for this upcoming school year! I joined this commission my second year as an Outreach and Policy Intern and had the opportunity to be one of the two Outreach and Policy Leads my third year. A fun fact about me is that I absolutely love coffee and so far the most cups I’ve had in a day have been four!

Hey y’all! My name is Brinthy (she/her/hers) and I am a third year Psychological Sciences Major and Biological Sciences Minor. I am very excited to be one of the two commissioners this year for the ASUCI Mental Health Commission! I became involved in this commission during my first year as a Logistics Committee Intern and continued on into my second year. This year I will also be one of the Peer Health Educators for the UCI Center for Student Wellness and Health Promotion, so feel free to ask me about either! During my free time, I love to Netflix Party with my friends and drink coffee (yes, both of your commissioners this year are coffee addicts).

The ASUCI Mental Health Commission is focused on destigmatizing conversations surrounding mental health on campus in order to help normalize and strengthen students’ relationships with their mental health. We do this through events throughout the year focused on discussing different topics within the field of mental health and raising awareness for different resources on and off campus that can support the mental health of our student body. We aim to provide multiple ways for students struggling with mental health to cope and recognize that they are not alone.

One of the major events that we put on every year is the Reclaim Mental Health Conference! This annual conference first began in 2015 with the intention of bringing together the student body along with anyone in the area who was interested in learning more mental health topics. In the past few years, these topics have ranged from how to reach out for help or support friends struggling with their mental health to meditation practices aimed at relaxation. This year will be our first year of planning and executing an entirely virtual conference, but we are excited for the challenge!
