If you’ve been at previous events at which Jeff Lieberman has been introduced, you will have heard many of these commendations before. But I would like to add one more. In the “helping professions,” many professionals are only sporadically helpful; they are committed to their investigations and perhaps a few patients. But Jeff Lieberman is not only tireless on the front lines of research and policy but also truly dedicated to helping anyone who suffers psychiatric challenges. Because of my own work, I am asked several times a day for references to therapists in far-flung places, and there has never been a time when I’ve asked Jeff to help me locate someone when he hasn’t done so. He has guided many of my friends through the mental health system at New York Presbyterian-Columbia. When I set out to write about schizophrenia, Jeff not only gave me the basic information by which I came to understand the condition but also reviewed everything I wrote for scientific accuracy. Introductions are appropriately focused on accomplishments, and one of Jeff’s real accomplishments is his kindness, which illuminates the lives of all those who know or work with him. His career has never gotten in the way of his underlying character, and with a career as vast as his, that is not an easy balance to sustain.
