Samantha Copithorne

I am a third year Master’s of Counselling candidate at Athabasca University in Alberta, Canada. I am interested in specializing in perinatal mental health in my future practice once I register as a psychologist in Alberta in 2020. Along with Dr. Gina Wong, I presented the results from my literature review in New York City in April 2019. In May of 2019 I completed the basic and advanced perinatal mental health psychotherapy training offered though Postpartum Support International (PSI). I am also an active member of the Maternal Mental Health Progress in Canada, which is a group devoted to research and advocacy for perinatal mood and anxiety disorders (PMAD) in Canada. I am eager to continue my research and advocacy into PMADs both in the remainder of my education, and once I graduate.
