DMAX Foundation’s mission is to create connections and conversations that matter to strengthen mental health and emotional well-being for young people. According to a recent study by Active Minds, 80% of college students report that Covid-19 is negatively impacting their mental health, resulting in feelings of stress or anxiety, disappointment or sadness, and isolation or loneliness.

DMAX is here to help with its new monthly mental health storytelling series, DMAX Students Speak!, scheduled to launch on May 28, 2020. At these events, college students share their personal mental health journeys and talk about the importance and impact of COVID-19 as well as the ongoing mental health crisis on college campuses. When student storytellers speak freely about their personal stories, they benefit by sharing how they are really doing with others and listeners realize they are not alone in their struggles. The program is open to the general public as well as students.View a video segment from our April 23rd pilot as Lisa Connolly, President of the DMAX Club at Millersville University tells her own story:
