Amazed by People's Resilience

By Philip Tange, MSW, LICSW

My favorite part about working to promote mental health is the direct contact I have with clients, especially hearing the interesting stories about their lives. I am repeatedly amazed by people’s resilience, and I enjoy helping them learn how to cope with and address mental health problems.

Other important aspects of working at Northern Psychiatric Associates are the relationships I have with my coworkers and the support that I receive to do my job.

One of Phil’s favorite quotes
“Good judgment comes from experience…Experience comes from bad judgment.”
