Focusing on The Mental Health of Harlem’s Black Community

I’ve been able to do my field research here in Harlem, working at the Hope Center, which is affiliated with the First Corinthians Baptist Church. It has been amazing because it is one of the first mental health clinics that are affiliated with Black churches, and that’s very much a unique combination.

I’m so thankful to Columbia and the School of Social Work for allowing me to bring together my love of interests. What has been great at my field research site has been working with clients and offering them free therapeutic counseling services.
