A Cabrini student

Active Minds

Active Minds is a nationwide organization with chapters on more than 100 college campuses throughout the United States. 

The Active Minds group at Cabrini increases student awareness of mental-health issues by providing information and resources about mental health and mental illness.

Active Minds also encourages students to seek help as soon as it is needed and serves as liaison between students and the mental-health community.

Through campus-wide events and national programs, Active Minds aims to remove the stigma that surrounds mental-health issues and causes far too many to suffer in silence.

  • Avoid casually using words like crazy, insane, schizophrenic, or bipolar. Try instead to use words like hectic, wacky, unbelievable, bizarre, emotional, upset, or moody.
  • Don’t treat mental illness as less or more serious than physical illness.
  • Don’t stigmatize those dealing with serious issues.

All are welcome to join Active Minds for their biweekly meetings.


  • For more information about Active Minds at Cabrini, contact Maria Ratliff.
