Alyssa Mastronardi

Major: Psychology & Spanish

Mental health is important to me because being psychologically healthy improves one’s ability to take on life’s challenges. No one should be alone in their fight against depression, anxiety or any other psychological disorder.

I practice self-care by writing in my journal, making arts and crafts, blasting music and dancing my heart out, cooking, baking, taking a walk outside, and laughing with my friends and family.

Jay Wang

Jay Wang

Major: Biology, BSA

I practice self-care by reading, getting take out, movies, and anything that gets me laughing so hard that I feel like I've done 100+ crunches. Most importantly, however, I keep a set of close friends and family around--people I can trust.

Israel Guerrero

Israel Guerrero

Major: Social Work

Mental Health is important to me because it is a vital component to everyone's overall health. Everyone should be comfortable in engaging in mental health conversations as well as have access to resources for it. Together we can kick back the stigma!

Mental health is important to me because we are all human. We make mistakes. These mistakes shouldn’t define us and I believe people should gain the tools to have resilience and grow.

Major: Sociology/ Women's & Gender Studies with a certificate in LGBTQ/Sexuality Studies

Mental Health is important to me because we all deserve equal access, care and resources when taking care of ourselves, regardless of our identities. Mental health is a social justice issue. I also want to live in a world without stigma where we give just as much time, care and attention to our mind and spirit as we do our body.
