Due to the fact that Anjelica dealt with a family member suffering from bipolar disorder, she wanted to learn about mental illness and human behavior. This sparked her interest to pursue a career in psychology.
Anjelica attributes her success to the support of her colleagues and her family. Her mother, a retired professor, and her stepfather, a principal, instilled the importance of an education in Anjelica since she was very young and they encouraged her to continue learning.
Anjelica has an intrinsic motivation, wanting to leave behind a legacy of helping those in need.
Mental health is a level of psychological well-being or an absence of mental illness – the state of someone who is “functioning at a satisfactory level of emotional and behavioural adjustment.” A mental health counselor, like Anjelica, is a person who works with individuals and groups to promote optimum mental and emotional health. They may help individuals deal with issues associated with addictions and substance abuse; family, parenting, and marital problems; stress management; self-esteem; and aging.
