About our Expert Presenter:
Dr. Susan J. Noonan is a graduate of Mount Holyoke College, Tufts University School of Medicine, and the Harvard University School of Public Health, where she earned a Master’s Degree in Public Health (MPH) with a concentration in Quality of Care.
For eight years Dr. Noonan also volunteered at the Maxwell V. Blum Cancer Resource Room of Massachusetts General Hospital, counseling patients and helping them find information related to their illness. In 2006 she was presented with an esteemed MGH Volunteer Service Award in recognition for her exemplary service.
Dr. Noonan has been writing and blogging for people struggling with depression since 2010. She is the author of two books, Managing Your Depression: What You Can Do to Feel Better (2013) and When Someone You Know Has Depression: Words to Say and Things to Do (forthcoming June 2016).
Dr. Noonan brings a dual perspective to her writing – as a physician who has treated many people and as one who has personal experience in living with a mood disorder – which allows her to speak about what works from firsthand knowledge of depression backed by evidence-based medical information. Her primary goal in writing is to bring depression management strategies to the many people who do not have access to mental health educational programs, adequate mental health care, or the opportunity to learn these skills in any other way.
Still wanting to reach more people, she also became certified as a mental health Peer Specialist and works with psychiatry patients individually and in small groups.
