Join us as we celebrate our congregation’s commitment to inclusion. Ms. Levine will deliver remarks during our Shabbat morning service entitled, “Active Minds: Changing the Conversation About Mental Health.” Changing the conversation about mental health starts with learning how to openly talk about it. Words matter when building a mental health culture that is inclusive, responsive, and respectful. Join Active Minds in learning how to best support our families and communities around this critically important topic with the goal of encouraging people to seek the support that they need, as soon as they need it.

Lunch & Learn Workshop with Carin Levine
12:30 PM
Join Ms. Levine for an interactive discussion about the pressing issues around mental health, current trends, and tangible skills for how we can change the conversation among our families, communities, and culture-at-large. Mental health is everyone’s business and each of us has the opportunity to play a role changing the conversation and promoting a culture that is supportive of mental wellness.

Active Minds is dedicated to raising mental health awareness among college students.

CARIN LEVINE joined Active Minds as Chief Operating Officer after 12 years of being a successful entrepreneur. Previous to owning and selling her business, she worked as a non-profit consultant and a large scale event producer. Carin received a bachelor’s degree in Communications from Northwestern University and an MBA from Yale School of Management. At Active Minds, Carin is focused on supporting the organization’s growth and oversees all aspects of programs, communications, and development. She is the proud mom of two fabulous kids who love sharing Active Minds’ positive mental health messaging.
