A PassionNet club about the various intersections of mental health with identity and effectively communicating these issues

Mental health and identity are underemphasized and under-discussed topics in general, but the pandemic has brought these issues to the forefront for many people. Through this club, students will: 1) become better critical thinkers and communicators when it comes to issues such as mental health and identity, and 2) learn more about themselves through being exposed to other peoples’ stories.
