SMILe was formed in 2008 after its founder discovered that she was not the only one suffering in (relative) silence through University with mental illness.

Did you know that depression affects about 19 million people in the United States every year? College students are especially at risk with half reporting that they have been so stressed that they couldnâ€™t function during the past year.

With so many people struggling, why is it still hard for us to talk about “mental health?”
