Thomas Nelson Community College’s (TNCC) Disabled Student Services team aims to increase mental illness awareness with two free seminars. Set for Monday, April 12 from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. and Tuesday, April 13 from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., the sessions will be held in the Dr. Mary T. Christian Auditorium, Templin Hall, Hampton campus.

Alison K. Malmon, founder and executive director of Active Minds, Inc., will share personal stories and encourage open dialogue to combat the stigma associated with mental illness on college campuses. Malmon started her first mental illness awareness organization, Open Minds, in 2001 as a junior at the University of Pennsylvania after the suicide of her 22-year-old brother. The death of her only sibling prompted Malmon to create an organization that would push for early detection and treatment of mental illness, thus, preventing others from suffering in silence as her brother did.
