The Nina and Ryan Day Resilience Fund will be housed in the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Health. Their gift is indicative of the Days’ deep commitment to encouraging young adults to seek help for behavioral health challenges.
“Supporting and building resilience in our fellow Buckeyes always has been a priority for Ohio State, but the past few years have made it more important than ever,” Johnson said. “I am so thankful to Nina and Ryan Day for their leadership and their generous gift. It will help us not only provide greater services and outreach, but to continue the fight against the stigma that too often discourages people in need from seeking help.”
As co-keynote speakers at Ohio State’s pandemic-delayed commencement in August 2021, Nina and Ryan Day both spoke of their own mental health struggles and urged graduates to find friends and loved ones who could bolster them in difficult times.
“With the support of champions like Nina and Ryan, we are quickly gaining ground and shifting the paradigm toward a positive outlook against adversity that includes hope, perseverance, courage and growth” he said. “We hope their generous gift will inspire others to support this worthy cause.”
