How does UofT inflict psychological violence upon its students?
#UofTKills is a movement to illustrate that su*cide erasure and lack of accessibility at Canada's top-ranked higher-learning institution is a form of structural violence. Thank you for contributing your story. Note: This research is unaffiliated with the University of Toronto.
Your stories will be used in three ways: 1) Anonymized and placed on www.notalone.ca website for students to view; 2) To conduct an independent anthropological analysis on how UofT enacts structural violence on its students; 3) Anonymized and compiled to assist with UofT mental health activists' advocacy work on social media and with UofT faculty (special permission will be asked for this).
