TORONTO, April 16, 2014 /CNW/ - The Family and Friends of Sasha Menu
Courey have issued a response to the independent investigation
conducted for the University of Missouri. University of Missouri
System President Tim Wolfe contacted Sasha's parents to offer his
deepest sympathy and confirmed that they will be taking action to
strengthen the university's policies to ensure students are safe on
campus. We are hoping the transformation in their support system will
make a difference and become a model for other universities.
The full press release can be found at sashbear.org.
In Sasha's memory, the Sashbear Foundation, has been created with the
vision of "Making Waves on Mental Health by building environments for
the advancement of life coping skills". The foundation's goal is to
lead a mental health reform by promoting awareness for the need of
early prevention, recognition, timely intervention and access to
affordable treatment of individuals with BPD. We are holding our
second annual Borderline 5k Walk to "raise awareness and show our
support for those in need" on May 25th at the Sunnyside beach boardwalk in Toronto, visit sashbear.org.
