Mental Health: Mind Matters Exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota – Facilitated Discussion

submitted by

One in five US adults aged 18 or older experience mental illness in a given year. Like most schools, Augsburg is seeing the impact of this trend on our students, both in and out of the classroom.

Join the Center for Teaching and Learning on Thursday, August 23rd, 2018 in their sponsored event viewing the brand new exhibit: Mental Health: Mind Matters at the Science Museum of Minnesota, followed by a discussion led by campus staff/faculty on this topic. “This groundbreaking exhibition aims to build a greater understanding of the importance of mental health and create a safe space for important conversations about mental illness. Hands-on experience through the Mental Health: Mind Matters exhibit brings you closer to the facts, feelings, and issues surrounding this topic that touches so many lives.” – from Science Museum Minnesota website

Attendees will meet at the Science Museum and will be provided free admission to the exhibit. Following the viewing, attendees will engage in a facilitated discussion of how this topic relates to Augsburg University and our students.
