Kent School Talk

Today I spoke to around 25 students in the psychopathology class in the Kent School of Social Work.  This was my fourth time to address a section of this course, and it was as enjoyable as always.  I was asked many excellent questions by this highly motivated group.
I received the following from the professor for the course, Dr. Judith Heitzman:

Dear Prof. Jones,

Thanks seems inadequate for your presentation and sharing with my psychopathology class. Many students were moved by your story, which stimulated much conversation about the stigma of and biases about mental illness.

It was particularly pleasing for me to hear how you use your strengths to manage your illness. I deeply appreciate your candor and courageous contribution to ending the stigma of mental illness.

Again, thank you so much.
