Alive! Mental Health Fair is a 4-hour fun, interactive, and educational on-campus suicide prevention program. Since 2010, the fair has visited over 200 colleges and universities. Many of them hold annual Alive! Mental Health Fairs. The onsite counselors and campus activity coordinators are amazed at how this event, like no other before, raises awareness, trains the students to recognize warning signs, and helps start the conversation about mental illness and suicide prevention with the students. Alive Team provides a detailed post-event report with the photos of the event and outcomes which can be customized for each campus and event.
Healthy Mind Games is a 60-90 minute virtual interactive event that helps students learn more about suicide prevention and how to recognize warning signs. Students are entered into a drawing to win college swag or Amazon digital gift certificates which are emailed to the winners an hour after the event.
If you are thinking of organizing a mental health event at your campus, school, place of employment, community event, look no further – Alive! Mental Health Fair is the event for you. All you need to do is provide us with 4 tables (okay, maybe 6 tables) and a high traffic location.
Alive! Mental Health Fair includes several on-going and time-specific exhibits. Participants are excited to visit four main stations and to be entered into a raffle which includes flash drives, Bluetooth speakers & headphones, t-shirts, college gear, and other prizes.
There are two interactive learning stations where students learn more about different mental illnesses and their symptoms and can see brain scans of each illness.
There are also two creative artistic stations where students can express their individuality and share their secrets, fears, concerns, as well as positive messages of hope. The hands-on Graffiti Art invites each student to create their own art expression on a large canvas. The canvas is pre-populated with a theme customized for each campus. The Share-A-Secret , where blank postcards are sent to each campus in advance of the fair’s arrival, invites students to write their secrets in advance and then come and look at their own and other secrets put on display at the fair.
