Dr. Oh currently serves as an Assistant Professor in the Mental Health Counseling and Behavioral Medicine Program at the Boston University Chobanian and Avedisian School of Medicine, within the Department of Psychiatry. Prior to this, he was an Assistant Professor and co-founder of the Clinical Mental Health Counseling program at Merrimack College, Massachusetts. He holds licensure as a professional counselor and is a nationally certified counselor. His research primarily focuses on suicidality and associated mental health issues such as depression among marginalized youth and young adults, including those in Asian American and Asian communities. Dr. Oh actively explores the social and cultural determinants of mental health, including sociocultural discrimination—encompassing racism, sexism, and homophobia—and its impact on racial and ethnic minorities, immigrants, refugees, and sexual and gender minority groups. He has also studied the reduction of mental health disparities and the impact of culturally competent behaviors and skills by helping professionals during therapeutic sessions. Dr. Oh has developed the "Client Assessment of Multiculturally Competent Behaviors," the first assessment in the mental health field designed to measure clients’ perceptions of their therapists’ cultural competency at a behavioral level. He continues to refine this assessment to better identify specific skills that effectively address the unique mental health needs of diverse client populations. In recognition of his contributions to the field, Dr. Oh was awarded the 2023 American Counseling Association (ACA) Research Award, honoring his impactful and high-quality research that significantly advances mental health counseling literature.
