It was a great experience. I felt like I had a lot of freedom. It was exciting to conduct research that was meaningful to me personally as well as to the community in Wilmington, DE and the greater Mental Health community.
What I wish was different
I wish there was greater community participation. It is important for any student going into a field that works with a wide range of clients to know that things often don't always go exactly as planned!
As I mentioned, this experience was mainly shaped by the student. I would recommend anyone in this experience to choose a topic they are passionate about and be prepared to come up with creative ways to overcome challenges.
