The importance of Fraternity on World Mental Health Day

ZBT is family, and ZBT is a Brotherhood for a Lifetime. On this World Mental Health Day, we champion the wellbeing of our brothers and friends. We hope you will feel comfortable having tough conversations and learning from each other. If you need to seek help, start by reaching out to a brother.

Brotherly Love is important to your wellness.

While college men are experiencing loneliness and depression at increasing rates, Zeta Beta Tau empowers students to create a strong support system that lasts well beyond their time on campus. Research shows fraternity members overall report stronger mental health and wellness than peers. The sense of family that fraternity membership provides offers help and guidance when a brother needs it most. The tenets of our Credo promote mental health.

Annually on Oct. 10, the World Health Organization organizes a global campaign for World Mental Health Day to raise awareness about mental health around the world and to mobilize efforts to support those experiencing mental health issues.

Today, we encourage ZBT brothers and chapters to reflect and be mindful about themselves, individually, and about the Chapter as a unit. How can you develop and protect your own health and wellbeing? How is the vibe in the Chapter? What do you need to do to be a better brother? Each chapter has a Risk Prevention and Wellness Director officer position; work with them on resources and programming.
