Dr. Pardes reached out to the New York Times in support of the White House National Conference on Mental Health (June 2013); which intended to launch a national conversation to increase understanding and awareness about mental health. The conference brought together people from across the country to discuss working together to reduce the stigma and help those struggling with mental health problems to recognize the importance of reaching out for assistance. With a vast background in the field, Dr. Pardes urged the country to put mental health on our top-priority list and to encourage the most creative thinking in reducing the shame and providing the care and support needed.
