Public Mental Health

Time for another video post! This week the subject isn’t very happy, but you do get to hear me say, “Howdy.”

In the video, I reference this post. As always, I’d love your feedback on this video.

  1. Dear Jim: Thank you for your post and your observations. I was at the WTC on 9/11 and am still dealing with the impact it had/has on me. My husband and I shot three rolls of film that day and it is as if it happened yesterday to me. I am compelled to check social media and internet news many times a day out of a “need to know” everything that is happening. This was not the case before 9/11. I know I am not the only one doing this and, you are correct, what is the effect on public mental health. Brenda

    1. Brenda:

      That’s an amazingly powerful story. Thank you so much for sharing it. The mental health of the public is so fragile, with the seemingly constant disasters and overwhelming stress of life today. There has to be someone who can step up and really help us learn to deal positively with acts like 9/11. I hope, and will continue to push for exactly that.

      Thank you again, for your strength and courage, on that day and every day since. Stay strong.
