Malia Clark

Development Communications Writer

Malia joined the Project Healthy Minds team in March 2023 as a development communications writer. Malia believes that everyone should be able to easily access mental health resources and that no one should feel stigmatized for seeking what they need to help them feel their healthiest. Malia is also an incoming Master's student in Media, Medicine, and Health at Harvard Medical School.

Most recently, Malia was an associate at Global Health Strategies, a global advocacy and communications firm, where she worked on issues like universal health coverage. Prior to that, she studied Psychology and French at Harvard. There, as a research assistant with the Harvard Lab for Youth Mental Health, she co-authored a paper examining how decisions are made in youth psychotherapy.

Originally from northern Idaho, Malia has also served as a shelter advocate for Safe Passage, a domestic violence prevention center in her hometown. There, she connected women fleeing domestic violence to community resources, gave presentations on healthy relationships to middle and high school students, and served as a crisis response advocate in emergency room settings.

In her free time, Malia's (mis)adventures traveling across the U.S. often inspire writing experiments in creative nonfiction, poetry, and screenwriting.
