SHSS Faculty and Student Present at the Haitian Mental Health Network Conference in Massachusetts



Anne Rambo, Ph.D.



Anne Rambo, Ph.D., associate professor in the Department of Family Therapy (DFT) in the Graduate School of Humanities and Social Sciences (SHSS) and Fanya Jabouin-Monnay, a master’s graduate and doctoral student in DFT’s Doctor of Marriage and Family Therapy (DMFT) program gave a presentation at the Haitian Mental Health (HMH) Network Conference held at the Massachusetts School of Professional Psychology in West Roxbury, Massachusetts. The theme of the conference was “Trauma and Mental Illness in the Haitian Community: Cultural Considerations for Developing a Broad Clinical and Research Agenda.” Their presentation was entitled, “School-based Community Outreach: A Resource Focused Approach.” The presentation focused on practical strategies for developing partnerships with local public schools to meet the mental health and crisis intervention needs of the Haitian community.

Rambo helped to found SUPERB, Students United with Parents and Educators to Resolve Bullying, which is now its own fully funded private nonprofit agency. She currently supervises master’s and doctoral level family therapy interns providing services in several public and charter schools. Anne is also a community representative on the board of the school district’s Credentialed by 26 project, a federally funded graduation readiness program.
