Having had conversations with various members of SUN and having learned about the organization’s goals, I believe that the student income contribution is an undue burden that is particularly pressing at the current moment during this pandemic which has already deepened inequity along the lines of race and class. I also support SUN’s motion to lower therapy wait times and meet patient preferences for therapists. Mental health at Yale is an issue that deserves more attention, and COVID has only exacerbated these issues and made SUN’s goals even more relevant and pressing.
