Ashley Reed

2018 Summer Intern

Originally from Cleveland, Ohio, Ashley Reed is a rising senior at the University of Georgia, where she is double majoring in Psychology and Sociology and double minoring in Anthropology and Disaster Management. She became interested in global mental health after completing an internship at an NGO in Rwanda that provided psychosocial care to HIV+ survivors of the 1994 genocide. She has since developed this interest further by conducting an ethnographic research project in Nepal about the mental health effects of the 2015 earthquake. After graduation, Ashley plans to pursue a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology with an emphasis on Global Mental Health or Disaster Psychology, and one day hopes to help implement culturally appropriate psychosocial interventions in crisis situations.
