about

My name is Mary and I recently completed a Master’s program in Social Work. I have a passion for mental health and film, so I’m using this blog to combine my interests in a productive and informative way.

My training has given me lots of experience working with those who are homeless, diagnosed with a severe and persistent mental illness, as well as the societal and environmental factors that affect the process of a person’s diagnosis. I also have a wealth of knowledge about the way the mental health system works within the state of North Carolina, which I hope to improve through my post-graduate practice.

Upon graduation, I plan to pursue my NC licensure to provide mental health services to underserved populations, as well as to continue watching and critiquing the ways in which films portray mental illnesses.
