Hi, Chase Anderson here! I'm very humbled and excited to at UCSF as an Assistant Professor in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. My interests in medicine revolve around mental health and advocacy for LGBTQ+ and minoritized populations. I hope to work with as many kids as I can so they might feel more safe with their own minds, are able navigate the world being minoritized and having mental illness, and to work with the family as a whole around healing.
Outside of the hospital, I like to write op-eds about race, LGBTQ+ matters, diversity, minority stress, and other topics (including how they relate to psychiatry), give talks at universities around minority stress, read fantasy novels, listen to Kpop, go for long walks, plan group dinners with friends, and talk with others about how to make the world better. Oh, and gay clubbing.
I'm also active on Twitter (not as much as before, but I tweet sometimes!), where I speak about racism, homophobia, and bigotry in medicine and the wider world. My handle is @ChaseTMAnderson, and my Instagram is @AresTMusesDreamCooper.
I look forward to connecting with you! 💖
