Shippensburg– Research shows one in four college students live with a mental health condition and more than fifty percent have felt overwhelming anxiety. NAMI On Campus is a division of the National Alliance on Mental Illness working to limit stigma a1nd encourage those who suffer to seek help.

Last spring, Megan Torbert brought NAMI On Campus to Ship. She wanted to be a voice for those who suffer and encourage connections between all people. It is her mission for the club to educate Ship’s campus about mental illness.

Next semester the club plans to hold numerous events to promote mental health awareness. The club hopes to hold events, such as a basketball tournament and a NAMI walk.
