I believe that mental health and wellness are the keys to successful living.  My teaching and research are shaped by this belief and on ways to make the world more inclusive through improving access to mental wellness.  I have a keen interest in community based, action oriented and participatory research methods. I engage with others in forming communities of scholars to examine practice and implement findings into creating change at various levels of intersection from direct practice to system level changes.
