It’s so easy, even knowing mental health woes aren’t really ‘in my head’ to ignore clear signs when I need more help and thus forgo the meds and counseling that have helped me all my life. There’s always that little lingering twinge of shame about needing treatment. Can’t I conquer this myself? But when I see the hundreds of people in the same shape as I am show up every year, willing to publicly tell their stories so others may be helped, I’m ashamed to think I was ever ashamed in the first place. What courage! What inspiration! What wonderful help! And it’s all there, for everybody, from lay members of the public to the top professionals in their fields. We are truly blessed to have the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute Mental Health Conference, and all those who make them possible.
