Redeemer launches new mental health supports, action plan in response to student death

Redeemer University has launched a Mental Health Support Action Plan, established a Mental Health Task Force, and shared mental health resources and supports with its community following the death of student Bekett Noble on campus in late November. The Spectator reports that Noble was a strong advocate for LGBTQ+ students at the university who repeatedly called on the institution toaddress the issues marginalized groups face. Redeemer stated in a release that it is fast-tracking mental health initiatives and investments to ensure that more students can access the resources and services they need. This includes a $1M investment in mental health initiatives over five years, a $200K investment in a comprehensive on-campus student health clinic, the formation of a mental health task force, and the implementation of additional crisis supports.
