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. Last year was our first year of planning and executing an entirely virtual conference, but we plan on bringing it back in-person!
