Emily’s Blueprint addresses on-campus mental healthcare at St. Mary’s College of Maryland. More than 25% of college aged students struggle with mental illness, which can be socially and academically detrimental. Many students don’t know how to seek help or are unsatisfied with the current procedure for counseling and lack of support in the administration. Emily’s Blueprint helps address this by creating an on campus space where mentally ill students can come together and create a community of support for each other. Peer mentorship and advocacy are crucial for students to feel supported and informed about their options and to create a community of care and compassion
