Seniors Piper Vu, Sydney Fuller, and Hemani Goje give a presentation in the first meeting of the Mental Health Club on Oct. 13. The three Mental Health Club officers explained what the clubs goals and activities were before letting the clubs members speak to each other in a fulfillment of their key promise to let students talk and vent  about their lives. We want to spread the word that you are allowed to vent your frustrations, have good days, bad days, and most importantly know how to deal with your psychological distress, Goje said. We all come from different struggles and have different perspectives. So, we wanted to respect the different perspectives and create ways to cope.
