Masters of Clinical Psychology student
Margarete, a provisional psychologist pursuing a Master of Clinical Psychology, is committed to improving the mental well-being of young people. Currently on placement at headspace, she hopes to empower youth to actively engage in decisions about their mental health and recovery journey. Margarete is part of a collaborative research project focused on understanding young people’s climate distress. Guided by principles of youth participatory action research, this project champions open dialogue as a means to explore the emotional impact of climate issues. This work is founded on the understanding that distress is inherently relational and strives to unravel the intricate social aspects of this distress.
