Laya Jalilian-Khave


I am a medical doctor, currently a post-doctoral associate at Yale's Psychiatry department. I am passionate about early childhood and adolescent mental health development, preventive measures, and interventions, specifically addiction development.

I am also passionate about developing physical and mental health improvements in deprived areas and people with less access to health resources. Creating health policies and interventions that can benefit higher numbers of people in need of care, specifically child mental care,  in resource-limited settings worldwide is my goal.
