Andrea Ellendt

Research Assistant

Andrea is currently completing her fourth year of the Therapeutic Recreation degree program at Douglas College. Since joining the program she has enjoyed learning about the field of Mental Health and the social and environmental influences that have contributed to the current issues that exist for people living with a mental illness today.

She believes that having the ability to participate in leisure and recreation is an essential part of not only physical health, but also mental health. Andrea hopes to learn more about what contributes to a person’s health and well-being and identify how to better support people in their daily life.¬†
