Thank you to all who participated!
Stigma Free USC Week 2017 was a huge success! Throughout this week, over 700 students came to at least one event, over 600 flyers about mental health conditions were handed out on Greene Street, and over 450 people visited our website. We hope that all of the students who learned about healthy eating at Ms. Moore-Pastides’ cooking class or pet puppies in between classes had a fun, positive time. More importantly, we hope that you left our events thinking about mental health, discussing it with your friends, and visiting our website to read someone's story.

We will be screening the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention's film "It's Real: College Students and Mental Health" in the Russell House Theater. It is a documentary featuring the stories of six college students across the nation facing mental health conditions. Following the film, we will have a panel discussion led by students living with mental health issues, Counseling Services, and the Student Disability Resource Center.
