Why did you get involved? "I have been interested in mental health since middle school when I began to see the effects of eating disorders on the students around me. I decided to major in Psychology in college, where I had the chance to co-teach Positive Psychology lessons to adolescent girls with mental illnesses. I found the experience incredibly rewarding. I hope to continue helping students grapple with mental health issues through the SPSC!"
