Tina Vong

  • 2021 Summer Intern

Tina is a rising senior at New York University pursuing a B.S degree in Applied Psychology. Her interest in global mental health started when she recognized the lack of access to mental health services in East-Asian countries. She was drawn to Columbia University’s Global Mental Health Programs (GMHP) for its mission to advance mental health research and training around the world, particularly in countries where adequate psychosocial services are in high demand.

As a GMHP summer intern, she worked with Dr. Geoffrey Reed and Dr. Tahilia Rebello. Their research is focused on the 11th revision of the International Classification of Disease (ICD-11) chapters on Mental, Behavioral, and Neurodevelopmental Disorders. Tina developed materials for the Global Mental Health Academy, an online course that trains mental health professionals on the ICD-11 Clinical Descriptions and Diagnostic Guidelines. In preparation for Dr. Reed and Dr. Rebello’s publication, Tina compiled a list of index terms for multiple chapters. In addition, she worked on an IRB proposal for a study on women experiencing intimate partner violence in Kenya.
