Who's Responsible?

By Nan Fink

CLAL: the National Jewish Center for Learning and Leadership, September 5, 1997

The author reflects on her professional growth as a psychotherapist, realizing that while mental health issues are not solely the byproduct of one's personality, neither is one's social environment entirely to blame. She relates the needed balance to tikkun olam--communal responsibility to help, but also a personal imperative to improve.
