Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology)
Brenda McKinty was awarded a George Alexander Foundation Scholarship in 2016, during her second year of a Bachelor of Social Science (Psychology) at RMIT University. Brenda decided to return to study while working as an Auslan (Australian Sign Language) interpreter and observing the Deaf Community’s limited access to mental health services. Brenda’s ambition was to gain the qualification of Clinical Psychologist with the hope to counsel in Auslan.
Brenda is currently working as a Provisional Psychologist at Monash Early in Life Mental Health Service (ELMHS), a facility providing young people with treatment to promote their mental health and wellbeing.
