"THE DARKEST HOUR IS JUST BEFORE DAWN"
I will challenge the participants to reflect on the profession. I will discuss the reasons they chose the profession and share why losing it is too big of a price to pay. I will talk about the pitfalls of overloading oneself and the need to maintain a standard higher than what's required. I will share the need to be honest, trustworthy and fair. One of the lessons I really like sharing is reflecting on my life and sharing some important lessons I learned.
In the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Session, I share from my own experience. I talk about the stigma of Mental Illness with a focus on depression. NO BORING SESSION
