I loved this project. I learned so much about the non-profit world. Talking with friends from Dallas, I discovered that one of my friends is starting a company to address mental health concerns in certain countries in Asia. After hearing that I was interning for the Lighthouse Behavioral Wellness Centers, he contacted me about possibly making a partnership with the agency. I thought this was really cool! I have definitely become extremely aware of the concerns of mental health in southern Oklahoma, and I hope that one day I will be able to make an impact in the lives of those I saw in the crisis units and clinics. In the future, I will definitely consider doing something in the mental health field as a medical doctor.
