to provide a safe space for family and friends by listening without judgment.
to foster mental health by practicing my lifestyle of combating the stigma of mental illness by being open about my own battle with major depressive episodes, social anxiety disorder with agoraphobia, and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder while practicing general psychiatry. I further pledge to address the impact of such stigma by sharing my story of the effect of such prejudice on my health and career.
to continue encouraging and supporting schools in identifying and addressing mental health challenges of students and in empowering students to talk openly about mental health. Reducing stigma is a priority for all!
