Project Description

Preston Public Interest Career Fund Recipient

“After this summer, I know that I want to continue to work in the mental health field, devoting my time working towards benefiting the lives of others.”

I went into LearningWorks on my first day hoping to build confidence with public speaking, learn more about non-profit organizations, and gain a basic understanding of different mental health professions.  At the end of the summer I gained confidence with public speaking, felt comfortable leading a group, and gained experience working and interacting with individuals with a variety of different mental health diagnoses. Working alongside clinicians and social workers helped me gain an understanding of the different career paths I can take working with individuals struggling with various issues.
