Our chapter at the University of Kansas has been up to some great things lately!

The University of Kansas has co-founded the Douglas County Suicide Prevention Coalition, a local non-profit in the Lawrence area. There are monthly meeting that the University of Kansas Active Minds takes part in with various representatives from around the community.  The Douglas County Suicide Prevention Coalition is dedicated to putting on events to spread outreach and that aim to better educate the area.

The University of Kansas has also been in the process of partnering with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) to co-sponsor a speaking event in the Lawrence area.

Along with working in their community, the University of Kansas Active Minds has also done so much to help those who are struggling with mental health on their campus.  The Active Minds chapter at the University of Kansas has worked, and is still working, to change housing policies so that students requiring leaves of absences from school for mental health reasons were not under threat of eviction.  They also recently held a successful co-event discussing sexual abuse and mental health.
