American River College is hosting a series of events to mark Mental Health Awareness Week.
The events are designed to increase the number of conversations about mental illness on campus.
Scott Crow is with American River College. He says a half-dozen events are planned.
"We have events from music therapy to yoga. We have a visiting speaker who's a vet from Iraq who's going to be speaking on de-mystifying PTSD. That's an important topic."
Crow says organizers will frequently discuss the importance of eliminating the stigma of mental illness."
This week is Mental Health Awareness Week.
