To open up Mental Health Awareness Week, Active Minds at Mines does Signs Without Stigma. A few signs get set up around campus. Each sign has a different stigmatizing word that people can identify with and can add to, to show they identify with the word. The mission is to let our campus to know that many people identify with each of the stigmas, so no one is alone in fighting them.
Attached to each sign are four balloons; there are three blue balloons and one green balloon. This is to signify that 1 in 4 Americans have some sort of mental health disorder. This is to show, again, that you are not alone.
