ABOUT ACTIVE MINDS

Active Minds is the nation’s leading nonprofit organization supporting mental health awareness and education for young adults. Through our presence on more than 800 high school and college campuses, in corporate settings, and with a wide-reaching public audience, Active Minds is creating communities of support and saving lives.

Founded in 2003 by Alison Malmon after the tragic suicide of her brother Brian, Active Minds is dedicated to supporting a new generation in ending the silence, helping to make mental health as highly valued as physical health. Through our many programs – including the emotionally gripping Send Silence Packing® traveling exhibit and our compelling Active Minds Speakers – we are changing culture and behaviors related to mental health across the country.

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

  • Manage programmatic components of campus-based equity partnerships, including securing diverse partners to participate in activations, coordination of in-person and virtual events, and working collaboratively with Programs and Communications colleagues to track progress on all programmatic deliverables to ensure that Active Minds meets or exceeds those deliverables.
  • Serve as a health equity expert across the organization, with our network and partners, and in the field, which may include:
  • Serving as a resource to Active Minds staff on updated research or emerging issues which advance health equity.
  • Supporting the Operations Team to build health equity trainings and integrate health equity principles within staff initiatives and resources.
  • Generating and providing health equity-related stories from the Active Minds network to support communications goals.
  • Delivering presentations, in-person and virtual trainings, issue briefs, position statements, and other written materials pertinent to health equity.
  • Supporting equity-informed data and evaluation of Active Minds projects.
  • Providing content expertise for funding proposals and helping to write proposals as needed.
