Club Connect: Meet… Active Minds

Active Minds is just one of over 200 ways to get involved at Stockton University.

Galloway, N.J. – For over ten years, Active Minds has been a consistent presence on Stockton University’s campus.

According to Coastal Zone Management student and longtime member of the club, Emily Zembricki, two upcoming programs to look out for in the future include a stress-less fair and a panel with faculty members in STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) programs. 

Details on the fair and panel are available on their OspreyHub and Instagram. 

The mission of the national organization (and Stockton’s chapter) is to promote mental health awareness, education, and advocacy through meetings and programs that advance conversations among peers. One of those programs includes an annual “Out of the Darkness” Walk during National Suicide Prevention Week in the fall. 

“The idea is, (the fair) be kind of like a mini Build-A-Bear where you stuffed animals and just talk about the benefits of stuffed animals. They can really help relieve stress and a lot of people don't know that,” Zembricki said.

“(For the panel), we'll be having a round table discussion about what mental health looks like in the STEM field and the ways that they take care of theirs. It's actually part of our panel series that we started in the fall, where we kind of just introduce our club and our members to people from different communities because mental health effects everyone and we want to hear everyone's voices.”
