My name is Angie. I am Afro-Caribbean-American. My nationality is Haitian American, and I am from South Florida, USA. I have recently moved to Manchester, UK to start my Ph.D. research in clinical psychology at the University of Manchester. My academic background has mostly been clinical. My undergraduate education was in psychology and neuroscience. My graduate education has been in mental health, rehabilitation in counseling, and psychology. My professional work experience has been clinically-oriented. In the US, I used to work as a behavior therapist with children with autism and as a mental health therapist with individuals with mental health and substance use problems. My academic research experience is mostly in neuroscience and psychology. I am hoping to start a career in research in clinical psychology. I am intrigued and culturally chock to discover the UK and particularly Manchester.
 My thesis title is as follows “The Relationship between Parenting & Mental Illness in Parents with Serious Mental Illness (SMI).”
