Alison Malmon launched Active Minds as a result of her personal experience in losing her brother to suicide while he was a student at Columbia University.  Active Minds has chapters all over the country at universities and colleges that aim to change the conversation about mental health. 

In today's Promly Garden  Podcast, we interview Pooja Tailor, a student who started a chapter of Active Minds in her own high school.  While many people may know Active Minds to be on college campuses, Pooja has successfully brought Active Minds and conversations about suicide risk and mental health to a much younger population that absolutely needs the support.  Listen here to hear her story.  We are so grateful to Pooja for her time, her honesty, and her willingness to lead conversations and action that provide an opportunity for mental health awareness, support and a safe space to talk about anything in a high school setting.
