Saturday, November 11, 2017 - 12:00 PM to 3:00 PM
Location: Uptown Campus
The Celebrate Mental Health Arts and Music Festival is a student-led initiative that aims to expand dialogue regarding mental health and wellness on Tulane’s campus. Through a celebration of student organization-led activities, student performances and student art exhibitions, students will learn about the people and resources available on Tulane’s campus that are there to support them when they need them most. Our Second Annual CMH Festival, which took place in November 2016, was a great success with over 400 attendees and 40+ student organizations represented, and we hope to see those numbers soar again at this year’s CMH festival. CMH is a free event that is open to all Tulane students, faculty and staff.
To supplement the celebration on Saturday, November 11, NAMI On Campus Tulane has partnered with several campus and community organizations to host more informative workshops throughout the week leading up to the event. Workshops will focus on themes such as creative self-expression and shifting perceptions of mental illness. NAMI On Campus Tulane strives to continue these important conversations through additional programming throughout the year, in an effort to develop a culture of caring and support on Tulane’s campus.
All components of the Celebrate Mental Health Festival, aim to frame mental health as something to celebrate, rather than stigmatize, in an effort to truly create compassionate, honest and reflective conversation about mental health on campus. Our event aims to reflect the immense impact of mental health on a college campus through a wide variety of forums that empower students to get the help they need.
