This fall, Active Minds is calling on high school Black, Indigenous, and/or people of color (BIPOC) and LGBTQ+ students nationwide that are passionate about mental health to be part of this opportunity. The Academy will prepare high school students for lifelong engagement on advocacy, grassroots organizing, and political engagement around mental health.
- The Mental Health Advocacy Academy is a unique, paid leadership program intended to ensure that high school students have tools and resources to develop mental health advocacy campaigns that will transform change in school, community, and state culture and increase mental health resources. The Academy will be held from September – December 2021.
