Purpose

MHI Team Members will assist in planning programming and advocacy projects that MHI puts on, such as our Mental Health Conference and Mental Health Awareness Month events.

Duties

As a part of ASUCD, you agree to subscribe to the ASUCD Newsletter.

Attend weekly team meetings, fulfill respective responsibilites of assigned committee, attend and support MHI projects and programming.

 

As a team member, you will have the opportunity to be apart of one of our six committees. The committees are as follows:

Research and Resource: Members in this group would be responsible for corresponding with different resources (both on and off campus) and bridging the gap between need and accessibility for the student body. Tasks may include researching for local organizations, gathering feedback from individuals who have experience working with those organizations, and evaluating those who want us to promote them to ensure their missions align with ours. This committee must also organize the Resource Fair and Healing Space during the annual Mental Health Conference, specifically searching for groups to come to table at the Conference, and providing a safe space for attendees to de-stress. Strong research and organization skills are required.

Advocacy + Policy : Members would work closely with ASUCD Executive Team and the organization's adopted ASUCD senators on writing bills to improve access and other mental health concerns on both campus and statewide levels. Members of this group would need to hold regular meetings with ASUCD, Administration, county supervisors, and Davis community board. Tasks may include lobbying efforts, writing bill proposals, and gathering funding data. Strong communication skills required.

Programming Committee: Members would find hosts for Mental Health Conference workshops and for Mental Health Awareness Month events. This group must be able to coordinate logistical information from multiple sources simultaneously. Like the co-programmers this quarter, this committee would be responsible for overseeing the progress of all collaborators and keeping the board updated on a regular basis. You must be able to adapt to changes, like last minute cancellations. STRONG communication and organization skill required.

Social Committee: Members would organize community events for team members to build relations outside the working environment of MHI. This group will be responsible for coming up with different social bonding events and ideas so creative and innovative thinkers are a perfect fit.

Publicity Committee: Members would promote MHI events via social media, tabling, and content creation/promotion to external organizations. Members with a strong knowledge in social media and good communication skills will thrive on the team.

Graphic Design Committee: Members would design and formulate MHI graphics for events such as the Mental Health Conference workshops and for Mental Health Awareness Month events. You MUST be proficient in graphic design and send your portfolio (5 pieces minimum) to mentalhealth@asucd.ucdavis.edu).

Skills

A strong interest in mental health advocacy, strong communication skills, and professionalism and dedication.
