Christina Klassen

Christina Klassen is a Master’s student at McGill University in the Division of Social and Transcultural Psychiatry. Her research, under the supervision of Dr. Mónica Ruiz-Casares and Dr. Cécile Rousseau, investigates how the migration and resettlement experiences of Syrian refugee mothers influence their wellbeing, parenting practices, and family relationships. She is passionate about conducting research that privileges participants’ voices and informs clinical practice and policymaking. Christina welcomes opportunities to collaborate on projects related to refugees, asylum seekers, and others impacted by migration, as well as on research that considers cultural and community perspectives in individuals’ experiences and perceptions of mental health and illness and in clinical practice.
