Nothing to Hide: Mental Health Awareness
|When:||Wed, Oct 2, 2013 11:00 AM - 1:30 PM - Add to Calendar|
The focus of this program is to dispel any stigma faced by college students with mental health issues. The program is both entertaining and inspiring as it involves many Marywood students and departments as well as an opportunity to make a pledge to help break down misperceptions about mental illness on Marywood's campus. Literature will be available about mental health and we will also have an array of informational tables on self-care and stress management. There will also be food and prizes.
This event will encourage individuals to recognize the need for help in themselves and their friends, and educate them about the many resources available on and off campus.
The event will include representatives from various programs and on-campus and community organizations, including the Student Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Marywood health professionals, Music Therapy Program, ALLY, Campus Ministry, Diversity Club, Physician Assistant Program, Human Trafficking Planning Committee, Chi Sigma Iota, POW!, Autism Speaks Club, Athletics and Recreation, Caritas Social Work Club, Student Support Services, Art Therapy Program, Psi Chi, Psych Club, Psychological Services Center, Vet Center, PASS Program, Chartwells, Pet Therapy, LRJ Suicide Prevention Foundation, Advocacy Alliance, Women's Resource Center, NAMI, and DATS.
