Ruth Tepler Roth
Ruth Tepler Roth has worked as VP of Marketing/Sales at a national insurance company specializing in mental health/substance abuse services, and more recently as director of admissions/PR at a yeshiva elementary school. She is a wife and mother of three children: two daughters and a son, who took his own life. She now devotes much of her time and energy to help destigmatize mental illness, and to be supportive of people who either struggle with their own mental illness, or that of a friend or family member. She writes on topics related to mental illness awareness in daily life. It is more than a worthy cause and it is part of what heals her.
