Anna is a medical student from Imperial College London. Having studied for a Bachelor’s in Global Health during her degree she will intern at Sangath for 9 weeks and assist in conducting research within the Addictions Research Group. She is interested in global health, improving the provision of mental health services and how the involvement of a patients family and community can impact on a patients and communities wellbeing. She believes that the internship will allow her to apply the theory she learned in her Global Health degree and also to learn from an organisation that has a track record of trialling and implementing new evidence-based mental health interventions. In the future, she hopes to train as a psychiatrist and to continue to be involved in mental health research.
