We are a student organization at UCSB called Active Minds. Active Minds is the nation's only student-based mental health advocacy program on college campuses. Dedicated to eradicating the stigma associated with mental illness, Active Minds members work to promote awareness and understanding of the issues on campuses nationwide. We know that mental health issues face thousands of students everyday, and we commit to doing everything we can on campus to bring attention and respect to the cause.

Active Minds, Inc. was founded in 2001 by twenty year-old Alison Malmon, after the suicide of her only sibling - brother Brian Malmon - who had just taken a leave of absence from college.
