As outreach coordinator, Lisa Meyerovich, a sophomore psychology major and neuroscience minor at the University of Maryland, College Park, aims to create a welcoming and engaging social media presence. She appreciates having the ability to forge a connection in the surrounding community. Lisa acknowledges taking the first steps to explore mental health can be intimidating, so posts online are made to be inviting and informative for the community individuals.
As a college student, Lisa studies psychology and neuro-related topics that are relevant to psychotherapy and the professional mental health field. She also relies on her experience setting up a social media page for a non-profit she partnered on that raises awareness for mental health in her own community. Lisa combines the subjects she studies at school with her previous set of skills in social media to develop well-informed outreach methods.
