Today I received the following correspondence regarding my talk last Thursday:
Thank you so much for speaking at ICORP's luncheon Thursday, November
6th, 2008. Your presentation was exactly what I had hoped it would be
and it was very well received. Your story is one that should be shared
not only with professionals such as myself and my colleagues, but also
with individuals who have a psychiatric disability so that they may be
inspired by your accomplishments. You should know that several people
approached me following your presentation and shared that they thought
your presentation was "just as good, if not better than" Dr. Frese's.
It seems the fact that you are new to this (speaking out against stigma)
was not obvious to those in attendance.
Once again, thank you for your wonderful presentation.
