Michaela Field is currently completing a master’s degree in Psychiatry at McGill University under the supervision of Dr. G. Eric Jarvis. Her current work seeks to identify systemic and structural barriers to access family psychoeducation sessions for Black families of first episode psychosis patients in Montreal. Michaela has previous experience working as a research assistant on the Listening to One Another to Grow Strong (LTOA) program, a strengths-based, culturally grounded, family-centred, mental health promotion program, developed in partnership with First Nations communities across Canada, and designed for Indigenous youth and their caregivers. As a young student researcher, she is interested in learning about decolonizing mental health practice and interventions and focussing on community engagement through participatory processes.
For the PRAM team, Michaela acts as communication liaison, developing and disseminating the monthly newsletter, as well as working on website updates. She is also a teaching assistant this term for FMED 604, 603, and 702.
