Doctoral students in the Clinical Psychology program traveled to Tanzania as part of a first-of-its-kind research project led by program director, Dr. Eva Feindler, in partnership with the American Psychological Association (APA). The 10-day trip was funded by a grant from the R. K. Mellon Family Foundation. Students spoke with local psychologists, community members and mental health professionals to assess the current state of mental health in the area, identify prevalent issues and explore potential avenues for support and collaboration.
