Su Cho
Project Manager and Research Assistant 

I graduated from UNC with a major in Psychology and a minor in Neuroscience in 2018. During my time as an undergrad at UNC, I was was involved in research on addiction and emotion. I also worked as a mentor in a program designed for Latinx youth in North Carolina. My passions include increasing visibility, accessibility, and decreasing stigma of mental health in underrepresented populations. My research interests involve mental health accessibility in Asian Americans, as well as understanding generational trauma that is passed on from immigrants (both Asian and non-Asian) to first generation and second generation Americans.
