USask receives donations to enhance mental health supports for students 


The University of Saskatchewan has received several donations to expand its mental health supports, services, and programming for students. A $1M gift from the Gitzel family will establish the Gitzel Family Fund for Mental Health, which will be used to hire more clinicians, support group therapy delivery, and bolster peer-health programming at the USask Student Wellness Centre. Alumni donors Ron and Jane Graham have also contributed toward the funding for two student support and outreach coordinator positions in the College of Engineering and Huskie Athletics; the coordinators provide timely and accessible mental health assessment and increase the visibility of the Student Affairs and Outreach team.
