This week for #freeyourmindfriday, Diya Joshi, first-year UC student and mental health advocate, took over our Insta stories to talk about mental wellness. Check out her bio below!

I am a freshman at the University of Cincinnati majoring in Medical Sciences and am pursuing a minor in Psychology. In my free time, I love to paint, dance and watch sunsets! I am very passionate about removing the stigma from mental health, and I try to advocate for it every day. I am a part of the Youth Council for Suicide Prevention and have participated in the 1N5 Innovation Challenges!! I am so excited to do this Instagram takeover and talk about mental wellness during the pandemic, my experiences being a mental health advocate and the importance of staying positive!
