  1. Hi, My name is Asia and I'm a senior in high school. I would love if you could do an interview with me either through e-mail or phone. I'm writing a paper on Mental Disorders in Children and how it is diagnosed/ affects the family. I want to go into a career of Clinical Psychology due to my love of children and past history with mental illness. If you or anyone you believe could help me can send me an email at asiayking@hotmail.com I'd appreciate the help.
