Nsashaell System are currently working towards a graduate degree in psychology. Our session will focus on our experiences as a plural graduate student(s), including our decision to keep our plurality a secret, various existential issues, how we handle a busy workload as a multiple system, and our future goals regarding becoming psychologist(s). We will also discuss why we are pursuing our degree and how our previous experiences with mental health care have impacted our career goals.

Shawn, Allandra, Erif, and Faeris are members of Nsashaell System, a multiple system with around 30 members who cooperate in their day-to-day life and identify as complete and separate individuals sharing a body. Nsashaell System found the plurality label 8 years ago and have since honed their ability to work together to create the life that they want. They are entering the mental health field with the goal of becoming psychologist(s).
