Back by popular demand is our Empowered Series! These 30 minute workshops tackle a different mental health topic to help make us all feel more empowered. Each workshop is put on by either an Independent Member of the Coalition or an affiliated organization. Meaning, these workshops are by students, for students. Come to at least one workshop for a chance to win one of two $25 Amazon gift cards.

The Coalition is also bringing back the Division of Mental Health and Substance Use's past initiative, Talk On. This initiative works to stop mental illness stigma by having KSU students, faculty, and staff share their personal experiences (through story, song lyrics, poetry, drawings, and/or photos) with mental illness. New this time, is the option to be a mental health ally. You can take the survey to write a message of support to anyone living with a mental illness, or someone who may be struggling. To learn more visit: www.kent.edu/mhsu/TalkOn. All submissions will be put into the Coalition's end-of-year exhibition to showcase all submissions to further eliminate mental illness stigma.
