Mental Health Awareness Events This Week

October 21, 2019

There are three Mental Health Awareness Month Events this week that you will not want to miss: 

Tuesday Oct 22: Minding Your Mind Guest Speaker Jordon: (Presentation: 6:00PM – 7:00PM Q&A: 7:00PM – 7:30PM) Guzman Hall 250

Join us to hear from an inspiring young adult, Jordan, who was hiding his anxiety and depression behind a mask of “the kid who has it all”. He turned to drinking to cope and eventually attempted to take his own life. Today, Jordan is a messenger of hope who teaches that although we cannot choose the things that happen to us, we CAN choose how we cope with them.

Wednesday Oct 23: An Evening with Chris Riccobono ’01, Founder UNTUCKit: Bouligny Lounge, The Center at Moore Hall, (7-8:30pm).

Chris Riccobono ‘01, founder of Untuckit, will share his story of coping with anxiety and finding resilience while he founded a successful business. He will be joined by Kristine Goodwin, Vice President of Student Affairs, and the RAR (Riccobono Academic Resilience) faculty fellows to discuss why resilience is important to consider when working to promote mental health and wellness.
