Mental health services need more diversity

Ryerson’s Health and Wellness Centre has been a vital resource for students battling mental health issues, but its lack of diversity has many students of colour feeling left behind.

The hued racial composition on campus is hard to miss. Walk along Gould Street on a busy afternoon and you’ll see a true reflection of Toronto’s fast-growing ethno-cultural community, which now makes up almost half of the city’s population.

Utilities, Wi-Fi and trauma: Rye students and grads open up about the health costs of living downtown

Cardboard cutouts plastered with packing tape line the apartment’s teal baseboard vents where they meet the dirty linoleum. While they appear to be holding something together, resident Clara Purdy said the cardboard is there to keep something out: unwanted houseguests.

“I don’t like hearing the mice run in the walls,” said the fourth-year Ryerson fashion communications student. “It still bugs me, even after four years.”

Wellness centre to open next semester

After a year-long delay, renovations that violated building codes and thousands of dollars paid by the Ryerson Students’ Union (RSU), a mental health support centre will finally open next semester.

Former RSU president, Obaid Ullah, said that the current administration is accusing the previous one of fumbling with the renovations for political reasons. He said the code violations were due to the work not being completed, as he and former vice-president of student life, Harman Singh chose to pause the renovations in order to pay back students for the 6Fest debacle.

Urban geography specialist Florian Mayer comes to Toronto from Germany. Toronto’s car centric layout served as a good test bed for Mayer.

Former Ryerson intern dreams of a greener Toronto

Smaller streets, green spaces and more accessible public transit could give Toronto an environmental facelift. Florian Mayer, a former research intern at Ryerson this past summer, is going to present his recommendations to the 54th International Making Cities Livable Conference in Santa Fe, New Mexico on Oct. 2.

He now lives in Denmark, but he came to Canada to research ways to improve city infrastructure, namely roads, with a public health angle in mind.
