The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institue for Mental Health Education partners with The Chicago School of Professional Psychology’s Student Association for Military Mental Health on various educational programs. Furthermore, the institute is continually making connections with the local Veterans of Foreign Wars and American Legions to start the process of banding together and promoting social change. In November 2017, the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute for Mental Health Education was honored to have Andy Weiss share the effects of the tragic loss of his son, 1st LT Daniel Weiss, to suicide.
