Sarah Kopelovich, PhD

Personal Statement

I am a clinical psychologist with specialized training in serious mental illness and forensic psychology. I specialize in evidence-based treatments for schizophrenia spectrum and other psychotic disorders. My clinical work and research converges on individual-, family-, and systems-level supports to optimize mental health care in both community and residential settings and reduce the likelihood of criminal justice system engagement among individuals with serious mental illness.
