Fresh Check Day Made a Difference in 2015...

"I love it. I'm going to get help for my condition more." -- Gateway Community College Student
"It was a really nice way to boost my spirits, and a reminder to stop and take care of myself and others." -- Emerson College Student
"As someone whose mental health had limited my life for some time, I want you to know that these things change lives. Your event made people feel valued and important and cared about. You may never hear thank you from everyone that today changed their life but I can promise you our campus is a safe place because of Fresh Check Day." -- University of New Hampshire Student

Thank you.

These are just a few of the things students had to say about Fresh Check Day in 2015. We can't thank the 29 schools who hosted Fresh Check Day in 2015 enough for their dedication to the mental well being of their students! Your commitment inspires us to keep doing what we do well.

Among the students surveyed in 2015:

  • 93.4% felt more aware of available resources after Fresh Check Day
  • 86.9% felt more comfortable talking about mental health and suicide after Fresh Check Day
  • 91.3% felt more prepared to help a friend after Fresh Check Day
  • 87.9% felt more likely to seek help if experiencing distress after Fresh Check Day
We think that's pretty awesome. Thank you for a great year of Fresh Check Days. We look forward to the next!

Inspired by the difference programs like Fresh Check Day are making on your campus and beyond? We need help to reach as many campuses as possible. This holiday season, consider making a charitable donation to the Jordan Porco Foundation. We're in it for life.

Remember to nominate YOUR campus for an OUTSTANDING Fresh Check Day!

Last year we introduced two awards to be given annually: Outstanding Fresh Check Day Campus and Student Mental Health Advocate of the Year. The amazing work of our Fresh Check Day schools and students deserves to be recognized and we can't wait to read your nominations!
