leading voice in college student mental health. PostSecretU is one
of Active Minds' many programs for students. Created by Frank
Warren, the program supports Active Minds' efforts to change the
perception about mental health and wellness on college

felt isolated or alone to connect to a larger group," says Frank

Active Minds hopes the PostSecretU program will help create a
community of support on campus where students can share their
thoughts, feelings and fears more freely.
