Scholars Promoting and Revitalizing Care (SPARC) seeks to address gaps in mental health resources at the University of Maryland by advocating for increased accessibility, funding, and staffing for campus mental health facilities. The team also works to raise awareness about existing resources on campus and encourages students to prioritize and dialogue about mental health. SPARC sent an awareness letter to 1,200 UMD employees and administrators, distributed over 5,000 resource cards and flyers, and held other events and dialogues with students and administrators, including the university President. SPARC's social media efforts reached over 50,000 individuals.
