Mental Health Resources

The Mental Health Awareness Task Force (MHATF) is a campaign to promote psychological well-being among healthcare professionals that was started by the AACOM Council of Student Government Presidents (COSGP) and the Student Osteopathic Medical Association (SOMA). At ACOM, it is the goal of the MHATF to offer resources and support to promote and maintain good mental health during the rigorous medical school curriculum. Additionally, we wish to foster engaged discussion on mental health topics affecting medical students in order to break down the stigma of mental illness.
