The Greater Than Campaign is dedicated to promoting a positive atmosphere surrounding mental health on the St. Olaf College campus.

Our Pledge

I pledge to put my mental health first. I will strive to learn more about mental health to better understand and support myself and the people around me. I will not use language that is derogatory and/or offensive towards mental health concerns. If I need help, I will reach out to a resource or a trusted person to improve my mental health state. I understand the importance and significance of mental health for all individuals.

The Bandana Project

The Bandana Project is a mental health awareness and suicide prevention campaign that uses backpacks and bandanas to support peers in getting help.

From prompts for everyday conversations to providing links to suicide prevention trainings, The Bandana Project works against stigma and reinforces solidarity in mental health awareness.

For those who don't know, The Bandana Project aims to train students and faculty as mental health allies. In attending at least one training, you will be provided with a green bandana to signal that you are a resource other students & faculty can reach out to if they are struggling with their mental health.
