Suzan's family is originally from the Darfur region of Sudan. She was born in Khartoum and moved to Egypt at the age of 8 and to Maine at 14. She deeply understands how overwhelming huge moves are on the lives of refugee families.

Suzan is studying social work at USM while working in the field. Her career goal is to become a psychologist so that she can be a significant help to the Sudanese-American population in Maine.

Mental health issues are significant in families that have experienced a lot of loss, violence and grief as immigrants so often have. Suzan already organizes people and resources to create a place inside her community to let people know that is is OK to ask for help. Suzan's love for her cousin who died by suicide drives her even more toward her goal of helping others. If you need help Suzan wants you to tell someone:
The Maine Crisis Line: 1.888.568.1112
or call 2-1-1 for free, confidential referrals to any social service resources in the state.
