In commemoration of Thursday, Oct.10 being World Mental Health Day,  CSUDH Student Health and Psychological Services is holding a series of events on campus this and next week designing to bring awareness of mental health-related issues and how to play a proactive role in recognizing and referring those who need help, and to lowering the stigma around mental illness.

Laura Castillo, assistant to the director of the Student Health Center, said that although World Mental Health Day is a global effort, CSUDH President Thomas Parham is a strong supporter of educating and heightening awareness on this campus, which is one reason for the series of events.

 “One of the main things that [he] is interested in is making sure that our students are not just prepared,” in terms of their education but also in terms of mental health resources and awareness, she said.

Events begin Monday and will conclude next Thursday, Oct. 17. Although all different, each is centered around creating conversations and awareness of mental health issues, from helping to identifying someone who suffers from mental health problems and referring them a professional, to taking appropriate steps to de-stigmatize mental illness.

The Mental Health Go Green Campaign kicks off today and is an all-day event that will run the entire week.  It is a great reminder to acknowledge the importance of raising mental awareness and having a support system and creating conversations. It will be held Monday-through Friday all day on the North Lawn..

Tuesday, Kick the Stigma, will be held on the east walkway of LSU from 10:30 a.m-2:30 p.m. This event is geared to educate students that one does not have to be a trained expert to help recognize, and even help, someone experiencing a mental health crisis or problem.

 Wednesday a Let’s Talk about Suicide Prevention discussion will be held in which interested people can learn how to identify someone who is suicidal, how to talk to them about it, and where to refer them to get professional health. It will be held in room 328 of the LSU from 5 p.m.-7 p.m.

Thursday, a mental health and well -being feast will be held in the Sculpture Garden from 4 p.m.- 6 p.m., in which food will be offered, and strategies and techniques surrounding managing stress and anxiety will be addressed. Also, on Thursday, you can show your support for mental health awareness by going to the Food Court in the LSU and wearing a provided green ribbon as part of the go Green Ribbon Campaign.

Two events will be held next week. Monday, Minds Matter at CSUDH, an hour-long presentation beginning at 1 p.m. in front of the Student Health Center, will focus on educating, advocating and raising mental health awareness at the university.

Also, on Monday, the first of two two-day sessions of mental health and first aid training will be offered from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Each session teaches participants how to help someone experiencing a mental health episode or crisis. The second day of training will be held Thursday, Oct. 17, and another two-day training session will be held Nov. 13 and Nov. 20.  If participants cannot make it to both dates in October, they can complete their first aid training by returning in November.

Upon successful completion, participants will obtain a three-certification as a mental health first aider. For more information, including how to register,  contact Castillo at lcastilllo@csudh.edu. For more information, contact the Student Psychological Services Center
