Visiting Other Worlds

Last week, I was in Tucson, Arizona, with Dr. Mark Rapaport, CEO of the Huntsman Mental Health Institute. Together we presented the Grand Challenge to eliminate the stigma around mental health, and substance use disorders to many of the psychiatrists gathered there. We had an excellent turnout for our session.

I enjoyed the psychiatrists. I had the chance to talk with them after our presentation, join them for dinner, and attend some of their professional sessions. I met many who were interested in helping with the Grand Challenge.

I am getting many opportunities to present at conferences where I would otherwise not be qualified to offer a session because of the Grand Challenge. Last December, I was at the American College of Neuropsychopharmacology with Mark and others. I was asked to author a position piece in their professional journal earlier this month. It’s a special thrill for me to visit new disciplines as we work to build a national movement.

Where might your passions take you this week that you would not otherwise go?

“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.”
