A role is to provide mental health services which utilizes extensive community outreach to ensure quality mental health services and support.

My knowledge spans across the board in vast areas such as: Clinical Psychology, Minorites in Mental Health, Cross Cultural Psychology, Psychology of Minority Men, Curriculum Development, Assessment, Retention Rates, and the study of Andragogy in Higher Education.

My research has increasingly focused on interactions between multiple social concerns, interventions to address upstream causes of mental health challenges, and use of simulation models to represent complex systems. However, methodological challenges and inconsistent findings prevent a definitive understanding of which social determinants should be addressed first to improve mental health with various populations as well as adult learners, while exploring interventions that may be most effective within a specific population.

I have a passion for in higher education, and as has served as a consultant for mental health organizations throughout the nation along with being in clinical practice for over 15 years. In my spare time Dr. Sawyerr is constantly sharing her knowledge and expertise at conferences and spreading her mantra “Mental Health is the New Wealth.”

In her spare time, Dr. Sawyerr enjoys working with children, adolescence, and at – risk youth. She also enjoys volunteering in the community and providing mentorship to those who are interested in mental health and providing supervision as needed.
