I am so grateful to Assistant Dean Eileen McKee for giving me the opportunity to do my Master of Social Work practicum at the ADHD Clinic in Toronto. The ADHD Clinic is a great example of inter-professional collaboration and being a part of it was invaluable. Equally rewarding, the work being done at the clinic aligns with my passion for advocating for patients’ needs and fighting mental health stigma.
The education and in-the-field experience I’ve received at FIFSW have given me an incredible foundation on which to build my future career and fulfill my dream of changing people’s lives. Thank you for making it all possible.
