Minding Your Mind

Friday, April 8th, 6 - 8 PM
Howard Gittis Student Center

Mental health is a huge issue for college students that can be hard to talk about. One out of every four people suffers from a mental health disorder. This is why we are bringing awareness to Temple to encourage conversation about mental health and decrease stigma surrounding this important issue. We've teamed up with Minding Your Mind, a local organization whose mission is to spread mental health awareness and celebrate those who are able to overcome it.

Join us for a fun evening of positivity and encouragement while we fight the stigma surrouding mental health! The event will include two of Minding Your Mind's best speakers as well as a fun mindfulness yoga session to release those end-of-semester stresses! Invite your friends and make it a fun and eye-opening night out!
