Speaking Their Minds to Stomp out the Stigma!

Contributed by LeBron Rankins

Tuesday is National Day Without Stigma!

Active Minds, Inc. started National Day Without Stigma "to eliminate the shame and discrimination surrounding mental health disorders by creating communities of understanding, support, and help-seeking."

Active Minds chapters on campuses across the nation will offer programming to support National Day Without Stigma.  Active Minds at Ithaca College will offer for the campus community a Speak Your Mind (SYM) Panel.  SYM Panels are comprised of a few students who talk candidly about their experience living with or supporting someone with a mental illness.

You are invited to attend Active Minds at Ithaca College's SYM Panel, Tuesday, October 9th.  4-5pm, CNS 112.

Individuals with disabilities requiring accommodations should contact LeBron Rankins at lrankins@ithaca.edu or (607) 274-3136. We ask that requests for accommodations be made as soon as possible.
