“I support the fight for full aid and improved mental health support. For me, Yale’s financial and mental health systems go hand-in-hand. I should not have to worry about funding my education when students are promised equitable and sufficient need-based aid. The SIC only places further strain on me and my family, and a lack of timely mental health support further contributes to that stress. All students deserve to feel secure in their ability to receive an education and prioritized care as equal members of this institution.”
