Naomi Ruth Cohen
There are many ways to describe Naomi – a loving daughter, caring sister, relative, and a cherished friend to many. She was a gifted artist and designer, as well as a skilled geriatrics counselor; who engaged with her community. Naomi was a compassionate and spiritual person, who cared deeply about disadvantaged people and the humane treatment of animals.
Marilyn and Larry Cohen are dedicated to reducing the stigma that has been a barrier to individuals and families being able to access the mental health treatment, support and understanding that they need and deserve. They established the Naomi Ruth Cohen Charitable Foundation in 2000 in honor of their daughter, Naomi Ruth Cohen, who suffered from Bipolar Disorder and died by suicide. In 2008 they joined with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology to establish the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute for Mental Health Education to reduce stigma connected to mental health and suicide through education, research, and community.
