CARE Project

The CARE Project is dedicated to raising mental health awareness among students and communities.

Raising Awareness

The Community Awareness, Research, and Education (CARE) Project is an initiative launched by the Indiana Counseling Association in partnership with Porter-Starke Services to interest students in scientific research about mental health issues and to promote mental health awareness among students and the community.

For this initiative, students complete original independent research on topics related to mental health. Research may be completed for a class or as an extracurricular activity.

Students with completed research are invited to present their work at the Indiana Counseling Association’s annual conference (all conference registration fees are waived). Don't miss this opportunity to present to peers, graduate students, professors, and professionals in the field!
