COMMUNITY. STORYTELLING. GROWTH.

 

Our mission is to remove all barriers from mental health education for college students. We want every student to feel supported during emotional challenges and learn relevant mental health skills to grow from adversity.

MENTAL HEALTH

LET’S TALK ABOUT IT

First off, “mental health” is not a bad thing just like physical health is not a bad thing. Mental Health refers to our cognitive, behavioral, and emotional wellbeing. Unfortunately, many of our cultures have stigma against the idea of mental health which means we’re rarely taught how to care for it growing up.

Everything from stress before a presentation, jealousy in a relationship, or the anxiety of feeling out of place plays a part in our mental health. Luckily, with the proper coping skills, we can reduce its affects and improve our performance at school or work, we can improve our relationships with others, and our overall wellbeing! That’s why we’re here!

COMMUNITY

A SUPPORT SYSTEM FOR EVERY STUDENT

However, we know that seeing an on-campus counselor/psychologist isn’t always an option for students. Every student deserves support, but they shouldn’t be forced to use one type of resource to feel understood and helped.

Thankfully there are students and alumni at every university who have been through similar experiences, understand each other’s experiences, and are willing to share their stories. By bringing them together on Mentor, we are creating a community of people focused on uplifting one another through empathy and guidance.

STORYTELLING

GROWING FROM ADVERSITY

So how exactly do we support one another on Mentor? Through storytelling! Our goal is to provide every student with culturally relevant stories around mental health they can relate to and learn from rather than provide a one-size fits all resource. We hope that through these stories of adversity and growth, students feel hopeful and inspired, knowing that someone who has been in their shoes has faced similar challenges and overcame them.

GROWTH

INTRODUCING MENTAL HEALTH

In additional to feeling inspired, we also want to introduce you to healthy ways to manager your mental health. As former psychology students ourselves, we noticed a lot of our friends could benefit from the material we were learning. That is why we’ve also created educational modules to introduce students to mental health education.  

Our goal is to teach students why they feel the way they feel, empower them with a new sense of control over their emotions, and inspire them to take proactive action to improve their mental health by giving them the behavioral exercises to do so.
