  • MINDS-Wesleyan

    MINDS-Wesleyan strives to create awareness around mental health in developing countries. Our goal, here at Wesleyan, is to create research projects that we will see be implemented in India. We strive to partner with local community clinics and hospitals in Middletown, CT to host events that advocate for high-quality access to mental health care in developing countries (like rural India). MINDS-Wesleyan will facilitate interested students to go volunteer in India with MINDS, who partners will local health clinics, local schools, and larger hospitals. From this, students will gain hands-on clinical experience necessary for their future health careers.

    We meet Thursdays at 8pm in ESC 072 Computer Lab
