Mental Health Matters 

Mental Health Matters. The Georgia Southern Young Alumni Board has partnered with the Division of Student Affairs so that the alumni community may help current students become their best selves. Healthy students are successful students!  

Our goal is to have 200 alumni join us in supporting students' mental health. In working together, we can show our present and future Eagles that they are connected with an alumni community that cares.

During the 2021 academic year, medical withdrawals doubled compared to the 2020 academic year. It’s important to let our fellow Eagles know that we recognize their mental health needs, but it’s crucial that we step up to help support them as well. 

By donating today you are helping fund our students’ access to informational programs and books, additional contact hours, participation and access to in-person Send Silence Packing, and student helpline cards. 

With your support, students will have the tools to succeed. It’s our house. It’s our people. It’s our purpose. It takes our action!

 Join the Young Alumni Board in supporting Mental Health Matters today!

Only 24 hours left to give!

 We thank the generosity of our 35 donors that includes alumni, friends and family who have already donated to help raise 2,261 dollars.

In addition, we are only 27 donors away from unlocking a $1,000 challenge gift presented by the Young Alumni Board! Our belief in the impact of community is why we are so excited to see the last 24 hours of Mental Health Matters. It’s our house. It’s our people. It’s our purpose. It takes our action!

Will you be one of the 27 donors to unlock our challenge?
