“In any kind of crisis, simple and clear guidelines for directing our decisions and actions work best.”
I recall teaching CPI’s Challenged by Mental Illness at Work Topic Module in the Chicago area. One of my students approached me in tears after the course. She warmly praised the course and sincerely thanked me for teaching it. She told me that one of her relatives lives with mental illness. Her relative was often ridiculed and ostracized for being mentally ill. My student said that she was so grateful that we’re educating the world about both the myths and realities involved in mental illness. She said she felt that we’re providing an incredibly valuable service to the world, and I agree!
