On behalf of the York University Graduate Students’ Association (YUGSA), we want to express our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Connor O’ Callaghan.
An online fundraiser has been initiated to support Connor’s mother, Suzanne, as she experiences this tremendously tragic loss of her son. Please donate if you can.
We encourage any member who is in emotional distress or in need of support to contact The Office of Student Community Relations (OSCR), located at W128 Bennett Centre. The contact info for the OSCR office is noted below.
If you’re not comfortable using university support services, we recommend Good2talk a 24/7 free, confidential helpline for post-secondary students in Ontario. By calling Good2Talk, you can receive information and referrals about services and supports for mental health, addictions and wellbeing on- and off-campus, or speak anonymously with a professional counsellor. You can reach Good2Talk by calling 1-866-925-5454 or by dialling 2-1-1 and asking to be connected to Good2Talk.
The YUGSA office is also ready to offer any support or accommodation that students might need at this time. Please do not hesitate to contact us.
With caring thoughts,
The YUGSA Executive (Acting)
