Four Northwestern students shared their experiences with mental illness at NU Active Minds’ “STIGMA: Educational Panel on Mental Health Awareness” Wednesday in Annenberg Hall. About 70 students attended the event, the group’s largest attendance to date.

“We want the people to realize that it’s not uncomMonday, it’s not bad, it’s not to be stigmatized, to have an experience with mental illness,” said Weinberg senior Jinny Lee, co-president of NU Active Minds, a mental health awareness group founded last spring.
