“Anyone can be affected, despite their level of success or their place on the food chain.” In fact, there is a good chance you know someone who is struggling with it since nearly 20% of American adults face some form of mental illness in their lifetime. “So why aren’t we talking about it?” Kristen Bell

The University of Hartford holds the mental health of its students and faculty in the highest regard. This Thursday, April 20th, the Office of Student Engagement & Inclusion will be hosting conversations revolving around mental health and the need to normalize people’s comfort levels by opening up about it. According to statistics, black and indigenous POC (people of color) and members of the LGBTQIA+ community are at a significantly higher rate of struggling with crises revolving around their mental health on college campuses.

As remarked in a UNotes Ad titled, “Silence the Shame: Mental Health Conversation,” This conversation aims to normalize conversations on mental health, peel back the layers of shame, and promote mental wellness for vulnerable and disparate population groups. This event will be hosted in Wilde Auditorium from 12:30 p.m. to 2:00 p.m.
