Racers Empower

Healthy Minds, Healthy Campus

Racers Empower: Healthy Minds, Healthy Campus is a collaborative effort by students, staff, and faculty members of Murray State University to promote mental health and wellness on campus. Mental health, especially anxiety and depression, is a major concern on college campuses.

  • connect students with support services and activities, and
  • promote a healthy mind and body for success.
