About Fatima Formuli

Hi! I'm an undergraduate scholar from the University of Toronto and am interested in inclusion and mental health. With my research project, I hope to explore how we improve mental health support and treatments to make them more accessible and inclusive of Canadian Muslims. Beyond my research interests, I enjoy connecting with people and learning from people's diverse backgrounds and unique experiences. I'm a keen listener and love learning new things!

This is a really interesting project to make/test the validity of the Dr Vancleef visual perception screening test for Fillipinos. All the best Paulina!

Love your leadership tips, especially "Lead by example. Do not ask anything of people that you yourself would not be willing to do."

Whenever I work with people in a leadership role, I try to be compassionate and think about their skills and strengths before assigning tasks. Not only does this make them more likely to follow through with the task, but it also shows that I believe in them to do this task.

Interesting work! Informal carers are super important in research, not only do they support the mental health of those they care for but they also have to deal with the emotional toll caring has on their own mental health. Hopefully more informal carers can give feedback on how systems can support their needs better
