Out of the Shell is an event hosted by Zeta Beta Tau and Delta Phi Epsilon that is focused on fighting mental health stigma right here on Maryland’s campus. We want the UMD campus community to recognize the importance of talking about mental health and that it is not something to be ignored or ashamed about. Around one in four adults experiences a mental health issue every year, yet we still pretend like this is not an issue in our lives.

On March 30th from 3-5:30 we will be hosting our program at the Nyumburu Amphitheater and helping to stomp out this mental health stigma.

Out of the Shell features:
Guest speakers from the Health Center and UMD Counseling center
Therapy animals
Free yoga lesson
Open Mic session for anyone to share their experiences with anything mental health related in their life.
