College Mental Health Expert and Sister of Student Who Died By Suicide Available to Discuss College Mental Health Issues
Date:8/30/2007

WASHINGTON, Aug. 30 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The following was issued today by Active Minds, Inc.:

WHO: Alison Malmon

Founder and Executive Director, Active Minds, Inc.

WHAT: Ms. Malmon is available to comment on college mental health issues and student advocacy, including depression and suicide

Ms. Malmon is a leading expert on college mental health and is nationally recognized for her unique peer-to-peer approach in addressing the mental health needs of college students. Alison founded Active Minds, the only national organization dedicated to raising mental health awareness among college students, following the suicide of her 22-year-old brother Brian. Troubled that he had struggled with depression in silence, even though he maintained a full schedule of extra curricular activities and a superior grade point, Alison was convinced that stigma and lack of information kept Brian from seeking help. Shortly thereafter she developed the Active Minds peer-to- peer model. With a comprehensive website, an organizational template for colleges and universities who wish to start Active Minds chapters, and an annual Mental Health on Campus Conference, Active Minds serves as the only link among young adult mental health advocates on over seventy college campuses throughout the United States and Canada, with anticipated growth to over 300 campuses in the next three years.

Ms. Malmon has been frequently profiled in various media outlets including The New York Times, Good Morning America, Newsweek, CNN, and CNN.com. The American Association of University Women named Alison a Woman of Distinction in 2007, and Mental Health America awarded her the Tipper Gore Remember the Children Award in 2003.
