Minding Your Mind is a mental health education foundation providing information regarding signs and symptoms of mental health issues and illnesses, in addition to stressing that they are treatable and help is available. The goal is to break the silence, to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues and illnesses, and to move away from crisis-based response to prevention through education. Students will hear from a dynamic young adult who has successfully and productively coped with mental health issues through a professionally-crafted and educational presentation. Young Adult Speakers share their compelling personal stories of mental health struggles, the shift from negative to positive coping skills, and remind the audiences that treatment is available and there is a path to recovery and resilience.
