Alpha Sigma Alpha is committed to fostering a sisterhood that is supportive of mental health.
The Behind Happy Faces curriculum was designed to give collegiate members the tools they need to address their mental health.
The program uses cutting-edge educational videos and lesson plans to enhance emotional development. Five lessons help define mental health and break down the stigmas surrounding it; open doors for more vocabulary to discuss it with others; teach about effective coping; and help members and their friends who are experiencing mental health challenges.
Each lesson includes videos, PowerPoint presentations, facilitation guides and handouts and should be facilitated by the chapter’s wellness chairman. Wellness chairmen, advisors and region volunteers can access the program materials on MyAΣA.
