Hi! My name is Margie and I am a senior majoring in History and Political Science. I grew up in Maine, so quite a ways from Virginia. I love to be outside, read, and am a member of the swim team here at Mary Washington. I am super excited to take this course because I think that mental health is something that affects us all in some form or another. By learning the history of it in the US, I think that it offers up an opportunity to have a greater understanding of our society and how mental health and its services have evolved over the years.-8/29/23
