What is the Unboxed campaign all about?

The Unboxed campaign advocates for an honest dialog about mental health and is designed to make seeking help more approachable. The university-wide initiative encourages students to overcome the tendency to box up and suppress internal struggles.

We want young people to unpack the stress and pressures of life—to reach out and open up. We are letting them know that IU has the resources to help them accomplish this, positioning the university as an ally in their experience.

We are stronger together

You can make a difference in the lives of those around you. 

  • Students helping students

    Some people seem to have it all figured out—or so we think. The ugly beautiful truth is that we all have our “stuff,” and sometimes we need someone to lean on. That someone can be you.  Learn how you can be a light in someone else's life.
