For Mental Health Awareness Month, we wanted to hear directly from your peers! This week, we are highlighting three trailblazing scholars from Coppin State University in Baltimore, Maryland. We are joined by Catherine Addey, Mellany Morales and Khaleb Byrd! These powerful voices joined us for our first student panel discussion in partnership with their university. Find out why mental health is so important to these students, and learn some of their strategies to help you improve your mental health today!

Catherine Addey is a Sophomore and Health Science Scholar and she serves as two-time Queen, Thurgood Marshall College Fund Ambassador, NCNW Social Media Manager, and V.P.C.I. Vice President. She is thrilled to be a part of this discussion to spread the awareness and importance of prioritizing one’s mental health, while sharing certain healthy habits to improve it.⁠

Mellany Morales is a Junior and Presidential Criminal Justice Scholar, who was born and raised in a little town in Central America, Guatemala called Chiquimula. In January 2019, she moved to the Unites States with her family to begin high school two weeks after her after arrival with very little knowledge of the English language. She works at the Office of Student Experience, volunteers at the Title IX Office, and interns at the Campus Police Department. She serves as the Vice President to multiple clubs and she was nominated NAMI Campus Ambassador. Recently, she was elected Coppin State's President for the Student Government Association.⁠

Khaleb Byrd is the current reigning Mister Sophomore and he is a Management Information Systems & Accounting Scholar. Hailing from prestigious Prince George’s County, Maryland, he is a proud Spring 2024 Zeta Gamma Chapter member of Kappa Alpha Psi Fraternity, Inc.⁠
