Description:
The mission of Active Minds at Thomas Jefferson University is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues through the creation of a campus where students feel encouraged to speak openly about mental health and seek help when needed. To help reduce stress on campus, Active Minds holds weekly yoga classes, zumba classes, and stress-less fairs open to all Thomas Jefferson University students. In addition, we aim to educate future health professionals about mental health by hosting speakers to discuss their personal struggles and road to recovery with such issues as depression, eating disorders, and substance abuse. Active Minds at Thomas Jefferson University has been in existence for four years. All Jefferson students are welcome and there are no annual membership dues/fees.
