Thrive Week at Red River happens once a year at both campus locations. These events provide students with opportunities to take part in in activities that promote mental health. It is facilitated through the Student Association and Healthy Minds Healthy College Initiative which I currently take part in.

Healthy Minds Healthy College promotes a week dedicated to mental health awareness around the college. A chance for students to relax and enjoy themselves during their busy schedules. We take initiative in hopes that we reduce the stigma around mental illness and create a safe environment for people to have conversations geared towards their metal health.

I think this is such a valuable experience not just for a college environment but for workplace as well. Mental Health does matter and to find other people who are like minded and take their mental health seriously is such a blessing.
