Speak Out is UNT’s mental health awareness campaign aimed at getting the campus community involved in the national fight to remove the stigma that surrounds mental illness and suicide. We also want to remind everyone about the mental health resources available at UNT and in the Denton community. Speak Out means that if you’re in need, reach out and tell someone who can help you. If you know of someone in need, become their advocate and help get them support.
With your help, Speak Out can:
- Reduce the stigma regarding mental health issues
- Normalize help-seeking behaviors and self-care
- Educate the campus community on how to identify those who are in distress
- Connect those in need with available resources so they can get help early and often
