A Morehead State student took big steps to reestablish a mental health organization on campus.

Cyndol Kiser, a sophomore at MSU, was inspired to bring back Active Minds to Morehead. Active Minds is an organization that was previously on Morehead’s campus, and was designed to combat bag stigma around mental health disorders and to bring better mental health resources to campus.

“I think mental health is an issue on this campus that you do not see,” said Kiser. “I think this organization will give people a chance to know things are okay, and be able to reach out. 

After recruiting members, Kiser will have to find an advisor and fill out the necessary paperwork to officially bring this resource back to MSU students.

“As of now, I have 20 committed members, and we are currently in the process of finding an advisor,” she said.

Active Minds currently has more than 400 chapters nationwide, giving 5.4 million students access to Active Minds.

“I want people to know that it is okay to reach out, and if your experiencing mental health issues, know that people on campus are willing to talk to you,” Kiser said. “People on campus and off are willing to donate to these organizations. No one should ever be afraid to reach out.”
