The World Health Organization (WHO) defines mental health as "a state of well-being in which the individual realizes his or her own abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and fruitfully, and is able to make a contribution to his or her community." The stigma surrounding mental illness has become far too common, but more and more individuals are speaking out and raising awareness on the issue. NSHSS wants to award students for their positive efforts in spreading awareness and affecting change regarding mental health.

  • Color headshot suitable for website posting
