Mental Health Awareness Month

Nobody enjoys an awkward silence. But when it comes to mental health, awkward silences don’t have to be a bad thing. This is why NKU is joining the national Seize the Awkward campaign to help the campus start those conversations. Learn more about the campaign and join one of the events.
