Submitted on behalf of IC students interested in starting a support group for men to talk about things that impact their lives.

Hey Guys,

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. 

This year we are putting our theory to practice and forming a support group called "Guy Talk" that will focus on everyday issues impacting men's lives.
