GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) Colorado Mesa University students are coming together to break the stigma on mental illness.
The National Alliance on Mental Illness opened a chapter on campus in august. Its goal is to educate students on how common mental issues are and give them options to help put them on a track to living a healthy lifestyle.
NAMI representatives say mental illness is the biggest reason college students drop out of school and want to support students before it's too late.
NAMI will have a booth on campus until Thursday in honor of mental illness awareness week with information on mental illness.
