Juliann Li, MSW Candidate
Juliann is a graduate student at the University of Michigan studying social work and psychology. Because she is pursuing licensure as an LCSW (Licensed Clinical Social Worker) as well as a PhD in clinical psychology, Juliann is actively preparing for a career in therapy as well as academia. She graduated from the University of California at San Diego in 2017 with a B.S. in clinical psychology (summa cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa, highest departmental honors) and a minor in human development, and she worked as a behavioral therapist for children with autism for a year, as well as served as a mental health professional for the non-profit organization Camp Kesem before starting graduate school. Juliann is currently a clinical intern at The Women’s Center of Southeast Michigan providing therapy and counseling services for her graduate program field placement.
Juliann’s passions and vocational goals have centered around mental health since her childhood. Upon psychological struggles such as schizophrenia and depression within her immediate family, she has been since driven to focus on improving the emotional well-being of others in potentially similar challenges. She have served in a variety of social service roles including academic counselor for college students in need of resources, and chapter director for Camp Kesem, a national non-profit providing emotional support for children affected by cancer. Given Juliann’s tenacious drive towards promoting mental health, she is thus dedicated to a lifetime of helping and supporting others in need.
Juliann’s current plans are to obtain licensure as a LCSW and complete doctoral studies after working in the clinical field. Her current research involves schizophrenia, stigma, and barriers to mental health care in minority populations. She is actively seeking supervision hours and social work fellowship opportunities for post-graduate clinical work in 2020.
