USask receives $1M donation to enhance campus mental health supports


The University of Saskatchewan has received a $1M donation to enhance mental health supports on campus. The gift was provided by four members of the Gitzel family through the university’s current fundraising campaign and has been used to establish the Gitzel Family Fund for Mental Health. This fund will be used to introduce additional mental health supports for students, such as counsellors, group therapy, and peer-health programming. “Mental health is such a critical component of students’ academic success,” said USask President Peter Stoicheff. “The Gitzel family’s generous commitment recognizes that importance and we are deeply grateful for their support today.”
