On a sunny spring day at MIT in Cambridge, Mass., students line up at a table grabbing ice cream sundaes, milk and cookies, and, if they're interested, a hug from MIT parents including Sonal Patel.
"Yes!" Patel says, "giving away ice cream and now hugs."
"Oh, I want a hug," a student says, "that will be good."
The event — billed as "Stress Less Day" — is sponsored by the student mental health awareness group Active Minds. Volunteers are handing out fliers listing mental health facts and campus resources.
Sophomore Matt Ossa gets his ice cream and rushes on.
