I work as a Mental Health Worker at a mental health rehabilitation center in Santa Cruz. Basically, I work with people who have schizophrenia, schizoaffective, severe bipolar or depression disorders and help them to work on managing their symptoms and educating them about their medications, and various other aspects of succeeding in the community. This work sounds odd to some people, but it has really changed the way I look at how our brains work and how stigma around mental illness hurts people who suffer from them.
Oh yeah, I also read a lot and love to watch and discuss movies. I'm also really interested in skepticism (evaluating extraordinary claims in a critical, open-minded manner), critical thinking skills, and I am a lover of science and scientific thinking.
