Rabbi Sara Berman
Rabbi Sara Berman is an ordained rabbi and a board-certified chaplain. During college at UC Santa Cruz, she worked as a nursing assistant in a long-term psychiatric facility. While doing her chaplain residency at UCLA Medical Center, she focused on the Neuro-Psychiatric Institute. Years later, she became a patient in that same facility. Rabbi Sara Berman has shared her experience, both professional and personal, with rabbis and chaplains throughout the country. She hopes her book (link below) will help end the stigma of mental illness and help to raise awareness about the debilitating effects of depression.
