  10. possible angel of mercy?
    I think you might consider encouraging the social worker to talk to the administration or whoever about it, rather than you doing it. If you report it, it's just hearsay. Also, consider what...

  12. Things I wish I could tell my patients
    I think one way of counteracting the stigma of mental illness is for those that have it to come forward and talk about it. Everyone has times of mental distress, if not illness. If we can be open...

    Keep your resume to one page, because that's about all most will read before getting bored (and they see lots of resumes, so things get repetitive). Put it on a nice paper--better than just typing...
