History / Biographical
Dr. Menno Boldt (d. January 4, 2019) was a faculty member of the University of Lethbridge, Department of Sociology, specializing in suicide prevention. He work on the topic of suicide, particularly in the Southern Alberta region, fueled Dr. Boldt to actively pursue awareness, preventative, and rehabilitation options for individuals throughout Alberta. This passion for better treatment, care, compassion, and understanding from the Alberta Government and general population led Dr. Boldt to become involved in multiple organizations and committees throughout his life. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, following the work of Dr. Boldt (specifically, the Boldt Report), Lethbridge became a leader in the research and implementation of comprehensive and innovative suicide prevention programs and services in Alberta, which had national and international significance. As an academic, he used his influence as part of the University of Lethbridge faculty to gain public and private funding for the implementation of various suicide prevention and awareness organizations and facilities. Throughout his career, Dr. Boldt collaborated with multiple organizations such as The Just Group on the Alberta Suicide Prevention History Project, the Task Force on Suicide which was founded by multiple community members including Dr. Boldt in 1976, and many other groups and individuals. Dr. Boldt was dedicated to the prevention and awareness of suicide among individuals, and how it affects the greater Alberta population.
