Submitted on behalf of IC students interested in starting a support group for men to talk about things that impact their lives.
Last semester, a group of students collaborated to form Active Men, a branch of Active Minds, to raise awareness about men and mental health. The group addressed the stigma about men seeking mental health support (counseling) by creating posters, a display case exhibit, and hosted a guest speaker who talked about his reluctance to seek help due to the pressures and negative social construction of masculinity.
