Mental Health Awareness Month – Mental Health Champions

As a part of our inaugural Mental Health Awareness Month Campaign at Kent State University, the Kent State of Well-being partnered with several areas across campus to develop a Mental Health Champion Award. This award celebrates and honors current students, faculty and staff who went above and beyond to promote mental health and well-being at Kent State. The individuals, organizations or units nominated for the Mental Health Champion Award provided support, organized educational initiatives, or increased awareness of mental health and well-being.

The committee (made up of student, staff and faculty representatives from the Kent State of Well-being, the Center for Public Policy and Health, Counseling and Psychological Services, Kent State Athletics and Regional Campuses) has selected the following recipients of the award who will receive a cash prize to show our appreciation.


  • Carmen Grubbs – Administrative Secretary, Kent Student Center & Involvement
  • Michelle Corvette – Assistant Director, Center for Teaching and Learning
  • Jeremi Weidner – Academic Advisor II, Geauga Campus
  • Erin Ahrens – Honors Coordinator II, Honors College

We are so grateful for all the winners and the additional nominees for their contribution to promoting mental health on our campus. To read more about the inaugural Mental Health Awareness Mont Campaign and the Mental health Champion Award, please visit our website
