Letter from an alumnus about Support for Depressed Students

I , too, like C.O. Weinman, M.D., support the recommendations of the Task Force on Health and Well-Being.  Reflecting back on my undergraduate years, I am to this day troubled by the suicide of one of my brilliant classmates.  I must admit that at the time I was only shallowly disturbed that it led to restrictions on my access to Fine Hall, but from an arduously-gained mature perspective as a husband and father, the impact is painfully heightened.  Students, if you are depressed, please seek assistance first, not ultimate oblivion.  Your family and your classmates are there to support you.
