Rebekah Perkins Crawford is visiting the Maxwell Institute as a short-term research grant recipient. She earned her PhD in Communication Studies at Ohio University. She studies discourses about mental health within religious communities and focuses on how peoples’ talk and interaction enable or constrain access to formal and informal mental healthcare resources. Her current work stems from interviews with Latter-day Saint bishops and professional mental health care providers who work with members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Dr. Crawford is a Visiting Professor of Community and Public Health in the College of Health Sciences and Professions at Ohio University in Athens, Ohio.
