Mental Health Funding at MacEwan

SAMU is asking students who have been affected by the mental health funding that MacEwan University received starting in 2014 to share their stories with the Government of Alberta in hopes that the funding, which runs out in June of this year, is renewed.

We encourage you to write from the heart and share how mental health and mental health services available on campus have touched your life. However, if you are stuck for words we have created the following templates for you to use or modify when writing to the government.

The below form will send your email to both the Minister of Advanced Education, Marlin Schmidt, and the Minister of Health, Sarah Hoffman. If you have any questions about this initiative send an email to SAMU President, Brittany Pitruniak at
