The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute for Mental Health Education’s overarching ambition is to reduce the stigma of mental illness, that has been a barrier for individuals, families, and communities receiving much-needed support. The Institute aims to provide resources and hope to those that struggle with mental illness, and to those who support them. The Institute strives to educate people on mental health issues through various outreach programs.
