  • CNS Mental Health Ambassadors are CNS Students trained in raising mental health awareness through campus events and social media campaigns. We hope that by spreading awareness, we will reduce the stigma surrounding mental health and create a culture of care within the college. We encourage all CNS Students to attend upcoming self-care events as well as follow our Instagram page (@cnsmentalhealth) to stay Hook’ed on Mental Health.
