College students are filling their minds with the information needed to succeed in their future careers, but counselors at one area campus are sharing information to keep those students in a healthy state of mind.
OSU Lima and Rhodes State College teaming up for their second annual mental health fair. Students received information about the services offered on campus as well as in the community. Several agencies participated including the Veteran's Service Commission, Allen County Health Partners, and substance abuse organizations.
Organizers say they want to reduce the stigma surrounding mental health issues, but they also say the information is important for college students because mental health issues are often discovered during the late teens and early 20's. Students were also encouraged to share a secret on a bulletin board. The goal is to give students a way to share the things they keep to themselves and lessen the burden a secret holds on their lives.
