Student Mental Health Coalition

The SMHC is open to any undergraduate or graduate students and/or student organization that wants to create a positive mental health impact at Kent State University. Under partnership with the SMHC, all organizations or Independent Members (i.e., anyone who would like to be part of the SMHC and is not in an organization), will work together to promote mental health while working to reduce mental illness stigma. 

The SMHC has two meetings per semester, and it is strongly encouraged that all partners attend both meetings. The SMHC can help your student organization by assisting you plan a mental health related event, share your mental health related events on our social media channels, connect you with campus leaders, and provide you with meeting space for your organization. If you are an Independent Member, you could help assist with developing and implementing  SMHC sponsored events, posting on social media, and more. All partners of the SMHC will discuss ways in which we can collaborate together to implement mental health related events and initiatives on campus. If you are interested in learning more about the SMHC, setting up a meeting to discuss a potential partnership, or would like to join the SMHC, please contact Bethanie Mauerman ( The coalition is located on the third floor of Lowry Hall in Suite 331.
