The Mental Health Ambassadors (MHA) are a group of undergraduate and graduate ASU student volunteers serving the ASU campus community. The mission of the MHA program is to promote mental health, educate others about mental health concerns, help de-stigmatize mental illness and the utilization of mental health services, and aid in campus and community prevention efforts. MHA volunteers work with the ASU Counseling Center to help promote emotional development in the ASU community.
The primary responsibilities of MHA volunteers include doing outreach presentations, attending weekly team meetings, and assisting in the development and implementation of various Counseling Center programs. MHA volunteers are expected to do a minimum of 5 outreach programs per semester and are required to commit to an academic year (Fall and Spring semesters) of participation.
