Why did you decide to become a mental health professional?

I decided to study psychology & mental health because I have always wanted to help others. I feel my most fulfilled as a person when I am serving others in some way, and I feel like pursuing a career in mental health would help me fulfill this true purpose.

What is your favorite thing about your job?

My favorite thing about being an intern at Mala is the people. Everyone here has been so kind and helpful since the very first day, and they have really made me feel like I am a part of this family. I have had the opportunity to experience so many things that I would never have done elsewhere. I couldn’t ask for a better group of people to work with!
