Nicole Humphrey, BSN, RN, found that working in a rural underserved community with extremely limited access to mental health care influenced her to focus primarily on mental health. She is a firm believer in providing early mental health care interventions for children and adolescents that need them. She is also interested in researching ways to help increase mental health care and access to treatment for minorities. Lastly, her work in primary care has increased her interest in wanting to participate in research related to the opioid epidemic.
