FAMU Chapter of Active Minds
The FAMU chapter of Active Minds was founded in Spring 2009. We understand the stigma associated with mental health may be great, but among the African American community, it is even greater. As a chapter, it is our goal to address mental health issues among African Americans through our outreach activities and other programing.
Currently, there are 458 chapters of Active Minds, and the The FAMU chapter is the 2nd HBCU chapter however we aim to become the 1st HBCU chapter that implements a culturally relevant programming that addresses mental health issues for African American college students.
