Mental Health Day was on April 17, 2014, and the purpose of the event was to raise awareness about mental health on campus. The Psych Department and the student organization, MIND, partnered with the Center for Multicultural Excellence, the Health and Counseling Center, Psychology Club, and Psi Chi to make this event happen. There were a handful of events going on throughout the day, including stress and wellness screenings, a wristband campaign, a documentary about mental health at DU (starring students and faculty), and a discussion panel about mental health with students, faculty, and HCC staff. The documentary, Unsilenced, can be viewed here.
