Support and Social Groups For Students with Disabilities

NEW! Campus groups that enhance awareness of disabilities and/or provide support to students:

Speak Out UNT! https://speakout.unt.edu/ is the university’s mental health awareness campaign aimed at getting the UNT community involved in the national fight to remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and suicide. We also want to remind people about the mental health resources available at UNT and in the Denton community. Speak Out UNT means if you’re in need, reach out and tell someone who can help you. If you know of someone in need, become their advocate and help get them the support they need.

Active Minds is the only organization working to utilize the student voice to change the conversation about mental health on college campuses. http://unt.orgsync.com/show_profile/43078-north-texas-active-minds
