Active Minds Events

Along with various other initiatives, Active Minds @ Kent State University (KSU) works directly through the Office of Health Promotion with University Psychological Services on two very important events each year: National Depression Screening Day in October and National Alcohol Screening Day in April. Combined these events have served over 1,000 KSU students annually.


National Depression Screening Day is a major outreach event coordinated by the Department of Psychological Services at University Health Services. In collaboration with the other counseling centers on the Kent State Campus. Psychological Services has been able to conduct mental health screening for our students and provide the appropriate services needed. Active Minds is proud to be a part of this initiative serving the KSU campus community.


National Alcohol Screening Day (NASD)is a free public health event that provides anonymous screening for alcohol-use disorders and offers educational materials about alcohol and health-related issues. NASD is an outreach promotional effort to reduce and prevent at-risk drinking. The event is open to campus and community members.


Some examples of various other programs offered by Active Minds at Kent State University are: Campus Outreach Programs, presentations for KSU First Year Experience Student Success Series, and programs and presentations on college mental health issues as requested by residence halls and other campus community groups.
