On Giving Day, the University of Alberta raised funds for programs and services that offer students healthy ways to cope with setbacks and provide support when they feel hopeless and alone. Your donation will expand existing programs and pilot new ones. Together we can do more to help students bounce back from stressful times.

Students don't have to be in crisis to need help

As at other North American universities, many of our students are having trouble coping. In 2013, the National College Health Assessment surveyed University of Alberta students and found that students were more stressed and lonely than many might assume.


Here to Help

Thanks to you, #UAlbertaGivingDay raised more than $61,000 for student mental health!! 

  Published on Wednesday, Oct. 14, 2015 at 06:17 PM (MST)
Thank you for sharing updates and information with your friends, family and colleagues! Thank you for reaching out. For changing the message. You made it clear that poor mental health should not be a rite of passage for students. That no one needs to feel hopeless and alone. 

Funds raised on Giving Day will help expand successful mental health programs, pilot new ones and train more community members to listen and help. When UAlberta students are mentally healthy, there’s no limit to what they can do.

Thank you for helping UAlberta students get the support they need to succeed, lead and contribute to a healthy society. You have touched many lives.
