Sometimes it can seem that mental health issues around the world are too big and too scary for any of us to have an impact. When I feel that way, I remember what Margaret Mead said, ‘Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.’

Dignity. Purpose. Joy. Like the explorers of yore who navigated by the stars in the sky, these are the values that guide me and drive me. Advancing mental health as a right, as a public health priority, as essential to our humanity is my north star. As a clinical psychologist working with patients, students, and business leaders, I have witnessed, time and again, that when we focus on mental health, we really can change the world.
