Mental Health Support Fund

This program is designed to provide immediate financial assistance to Undergraduate Students at the University of Toronto St. George Campus seeking professional mental health services during the postponement of the UTSU Public & University Affairs Office’s “Downtown Mental Health Services” (DMHS) pilot project.

The DMHS project, initially slated for a January launch, will now commence in the Summer of 2024 due to practicum placement challenges and communication delays with Health & Wellness. This interim grant ensures continued support for student mental health needs at a time of enhanced need.
