Mentoring Program

Our Underrepresented Researchers Mentoring Program provides training for individuals who historically have faced barriers in pursuing careers in social sciences research, and creates opportunities for young people with serious mental health conditions to enter careers as co-trainers in interdisciplinary mental health education and as peer support providers to young people.

This mentoring program offers research opportunities in young people's mental health to undergraduate and graduate students at Portland State University. The project identifies people who are underrepresented in research (people of color, young people who have experience using mental health services, and young people with disabilities). Participants receive training and access to supports and resources to become skilled and confident researchers.
