Yesterday, we teamed up with CT Stay Strong to run the Mood Matters booth at Capital Community College’s Fresh Check Day!
Fresh Check Day, the signature program of the Jordan Porco Foundation, is an uplifting mental health promotion and suicide prevention event for colleges that includes interactive expo booths, peer-to-peer messaging, support of multiple campus departments and groups, free food, entertainment, and exciting prizes and giveaways. Fresh Check Day aims to create an approachable and hopeful atmosphere where students are encouraged to engage in dialogue about mental health and helps to build a bridge between students and the mental health resources available on campus, in the community, and nationally.
At our Mood Matters booth, we did an activity where we asked students the question “How Do You Maintain Your Mental Wellness?” The wrote the ways they like to maintain their mental wellness on sticky notes and put them on a poster board where others could see.
The point of the Mood Matters booth was to raise awareness, educate, and decrease stigma about anxiety and mood disorders, including bipolar disorder and depression, among college students. We also shared resources and treatment options for mood and anxiety disorders.
