A donation to MindHandHeart enables students, faculty, and staff to carry out nimble and innovative projects that approach mental health and well-being from diverse perspectives and with wide-ranging talents. Our generous contributors have increased opportunities for connectedness and caring; sparked conversation.; encouraged help-seeking; and raised awareness.
They have empowered students like Bettina Arkhurst ’18 and Cory Johnson ’18, who organized students and engaged departments to join in Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Week, an event series bringing MIT together through small, spontaneous acts of generosity. Our contributors have supported MIT Connect, a digital platform connecting members of the MIT community for platonic, one-on-one lunches. And this year, our donors have made it so that every member of the incoming AY 2017-18 class will receive a copy of Portraits of Resilience, a book profiling MIT students and faculty who have overcome adversity.
On behalf of all the MIT community members involved with MindHandHeart: thank you for helping us to infuse 'cor' (heart) into 'mens et manus' (mind and hand).
