When Glenn’s initial visit to IU ended up creating the idea for U Bring Change 2 Mind, we all knew there would be a monumental rush to get it up and running. A major project like this is usually designed and mounted in no less than an academic year. Yet, we knew the need was urgent, the excitement high, and the possibility there. Without our partners, from the many faculty who have volunteered their time for UBC2M and the College Toolbox, the IU administrators who were so encouraging and “plowed the road” in so many ways, the student leaders who came with wisdom and enthusiasm to be front and center, and the many, many sponsors who have made contributions, UBC2M could not have happened so soon, or perhaps not at all. While we cannot express how deeply we are grateful, we wanted to provide a list of the contributors to this effort.
In addition to BC2M and IUB, other advisors to UBC2M the College Toolbox include the Jed Foundation that targets the reduction of suicidal behavior among college students; Time to Change, the U.K.’s national, multi-faceted campaign to reduce stigma; Active Minds, and the National Alliance on Mental Illness College Activist Group. Financial support is being provided by BC2M, the IU Foundation, with additional in-kind support for faculty participation from the IU schools listed below.
