During his time as a masters student, he helped shape the future of mental health services on campus as a member of the Presidential & Provostial Task Force on Student Mental Health. Together with Simon Lam, he also helped create a new Health & Wellness Peer Support program, which provides University of Toronto students with the opportunity to seek support from second year or advanced standing master of social work students.
