Suicide puts focus on student mental health

The suicide of an AE PhD candidate, Nimrod Rooz, on Oct. 17 has prompted the question of student mental health and well-being on campus. This is the third year in a row that Tech has had a graduate student commit suicide. The circumstances surrounding the suicide remain unknown.
The Graduate Student Senate (GSS) unanimously passed a resolution on Tuesday, Oct. 25, to express condolences.
“I think mental health for students in general is something to be concerned about…given the past incidence of these [suicides], we’re all very concerned…I think the best way to respond to this is by public awareness,” said James Black, Graduate Student Body President.
