Student Organization: Mental Health Matters

Description Mental Health Matters is a UChapter of the greater non-profit organization To Write Love on Her Arms. Our mission is to raise awareness on NMU's campus and to the Marquette community about mental health issues such as depression, addiction, self-injury, eating disorders and suicide. These activities include: "tabling" for specific topics (mental illness stigmas, PTSD, National Suicide Survivors Day, etc.), collaborating with NMU's library to encourage reading of mental illness related literature to promote empathy and break stigmas, and Hope-N-Mic Night -- a night for everyone to come together and listen to others' stories, poetry, and music, and partake in a raffle sponsored by Marquette businesses. Membership is open to all currently enrolled NMU students with a desire to learn about/raise awareness of these issues. For more information, email bshampin@nmu.edu
