For 2021’s Mental Health Awareness Month, our campus will continue to amplify the message of “You Are Not Alone.” We will use this time to focus on prioritizing mental health, making connections and acknowledging that it’s okay to not be okay. Together, we can realize our shared vision of a nation where anyone affected by mental illness can get the appropriate support and quality of care to live healthy, fulfilling lives — a nation where no one feels alone in their struggle.
