Our Mission

The goal of the Mental Health Identity and Adaptability Lab is to produce quality research on the diversity of communities of individuals living with serious mental health conditions. Additionally, we aim to highlight their intersectional challenges and adaptability, and to address the challenges they face in fulfilling their desire for social role engagement (whether as a student, a worker, family member, or friend).

Furthermore, our goal is to integrate vocational psychology and vocational rehabilitation in the work lives of individuals living with serious mental health conditions. In conjunction with research, this lab operates as a teaching experience. It takes students and educates them on data collection, analysis and the ability to draw conclusion from the sample and create manuscripts that detail the results of their collected data.
