About Anim Aweh
Anim O. Aweh, licensed clinical social worker and health educator discovered her passion for public health and mental health in minority women while still in high school. Daughter of immigrant parents, Anim was raised understanding the importance of education. Their philosophy, “a good education is the only way to make it in this country,” quickly became a philosophy that she would adopt as her own.
Anim, completed her undergraduate degree in Public Health, then went on to work for the Veteran’s Administration Medical Center Hospital in Boston. While working at the hospital, she volunteered some of her time doing outreach work through the social work department. Discovering yet another passion, Anim would complete her Master’s in Social Work. While completing her MSW Anim continued to focus on health and mental health issues and completed her dissertation on Postpartum depression access to care in the state of Massachusetts. She would then return to the Boys & Girls Club to pilot the first mental health program geared towards children by developing and facilitating cognitive psychotherapy groups and individual psychotherapy. She encourages those that are receiving services to be patient with the process, looking for immediate results is not realistic.
“We have the power to make changes that will transcend the future generations,” says Anim when speaking of public health and mental health.
