U Bring Change to Mind’s mission is to eliminate the stigma associated with mental illness on college campuses. Through fun awareness activities and a spirit of inclusion and education, U Bring Change to Mind targets both local and national change, and both individual and institutional change. By emphasizing “connectedness” we can change attitudes, generate social support, and put pressure on administrators to improve services, in order to eliminate barriers to care and to fulfill lives.
Based on the philosophy of “By Students, For Students,” UBC2M is composed of students committed to making an impact in their campus communities. These impassioned students work not only to reduce the stigma among their peers but also with administration on making policy more accommodating to students with mental health needs.
