Stigma about mental conditions is a powerful barrier to the millions who could benefit from help from receiving it.
As it is said in Ecclesiastes 3, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven, . . .” In my life, it is now the time to give back. I will do so by serving on the board of my local community services agency, whose services include mental health, substance abuse, and support for children, youth and the aging.
