Did you know this is suicide prevention month?
Vinik EPS is proud to support Active Minds, a non-profit organization that serves as the voice of young adult mental health advocacy nationwide. We see firsthand all of the stress facing teenagers these days and we applaud their efforts to destigmatize mental health issues.
Alison Malmon, originally from Potomac, MD, founded the organization when she was a junior at the University of Pennsylvania, following the suicide of her older brother, Brian. With more than 400 campus chapters, hundreds of thousands of young adults all across the country are benefiting from the Active Minds model which works to combat the stigma of mental illness and encourage students who need help to seek it early.
Laura Hosid serves on the Host Committee for the Active Minds Casino Night fundraiser, and Vinik EPS has donated a college counseling package to the silent auction.
