UA Active Minds Meeting Recap #2
Couldn't make it? Don't worry, we've got you covered:
- Attendees had the privilege of receiving free QPR suicide prevention training from our very own club supervisor, Lee Ann Hamilton.
- What is QPR, you ask? Question, Persuade, Refer
- Members took advantage of some invaluable insights and suicide prevention techniques shared by their fellow mental health advocates
- Last but not least: we met a TON of new members! This is something we always love to see. Everyone from Freshmen to Super Senior Wildcats made their presences felt!
September 10 - October 6 is Active Minds Suicide Prevention Month!

National Depression Screening Day!
Thursday, Oct. 9th, 9:30am-2:30pm
UA Mall, University of Arizona
National Depression Screening Day (NDSD) consists of various awareness events - including an optional screening component - and is held annually during this week. This year, these events will be taking place right here on the U of A Mall.
Active Minds has been invited to help administer the screenings. Not only is this a great way to reach out to your fellow Wildcats, it's also a perfect way for us to spread awareness about mental illness! Additionally, CAPS professional staff will be available to speak to students who score positive for depression, anxiety, bi-polar, or PTSD.
