Mental Health Research Project Idea

Hello! I am interested in conducting a research project on surveying medical students nationally regarding if they have been affected by feelings of burnout, depression, and suicidal ideation. I would also like to learn about the barriers to accessing care (i.e. issue with taking time away from studying to see a counselor) and methods that have been helpful (i.e. social events paid for by a university).

I am looking for other students who are passionate about mental health issues and would like to take time this summer to work on this project with me. Please contact me at if you are interested in collaborating!

Welcome to the SOMA Collaboration Space!

The purpose of the collaboration space is to provide a venue in which your peers can post about projects or ideas that they are working on and request guidance, assistance, or partnership. Think of it as a “Help Wanted” ad.

Our goal is that this will help connect all four classes and kindle new and exciting projects. Please use the submission form to post about your idea and include a brief description on:

  • What your idea is

  • What you are looking for/ what kind of assistance you would like
