MGH has been at the forefront of many scientific advances in treatments for depression.

Anna Schwarz graduated from St. Lawrence University in 2015 with a BS in Psychology and a minor in Government. As an undergraduate she volunteered at the NYSARC Community Arts Center in Canton, NY, a program that offers creative, social, and recreational opportunities for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. She spent the spring semester of her junior year in Copenhagen, Denmark studying positive psychology and conducting field research that examined the association between culture and Gross National Happiness (GNH). As a senior, Anna completed a year-long honors thesis where she investigated the relationship between a judge’s gender and a juror’s ability to comprehend instructions and make decisions during a criminal trial. Ultimately, Anna hopes to pursue a degree in Social Work or Clinical Mental Health Counseling.
