Dallas Franklin earned a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology in 2017, and, following graduation, turned her focus to a four-week mental health placement working with local mental health organizations and institutions in Sri Lanka to bring awareness and challenge the stigma’s surrounding mental health.

Dallas went on to continue her education in the Social Service Worker program at George Brown College. Dallas was able to complete the program in one year thanks to her undergraduate degree. Dallas is currently in her second year in the Social Work program at Ryerson University, and she has recently been accepted to a Clinical and Ancient Psychology program in India.

“I am so glad I chose to go to Carleton. It’s a small small-town community feel even though it’s located in the middle of the capital city, so it is really the best of both worlds! As for the program itself, I feel that Carleton is the best place to study psychology because of the opportunities available in the program and in the city. There are six available concentrations for students to choose from and Ottawa is home to some of the leading mental health hospitals in the province.”
