Christie Amedia, MA
Having spent the last 15 years raising my 2 children and volunteering in their schools, I joined the Linkages program in 2019 as a Mental Health Liaison. I earned my Master’s in Forensic Psychology from the John Jay College of Criminal Justice, CUNY in 2001 and have a Bachelor’s degree in Psychology from Kenyon College. I had previously worked in residential treatment centers, group homes, inpatient units and placement agencies. My experience with youth mental health treatment and school involvement felt like the perfect combination to visit local schools to educate the students about mental health, depression and suicide.
