Dr. Tami West is a wonderful speaker, she is authentic, genuine, and engaging. She helped us honor our World Mental Health day event and throughout the session, you can tell she took time to get to know our company and our organization. She also then helped moderate a panel of our employees who shared their stories as well. We enjoyed working with her and would recommend her to anyone interested in helping better understand the various ways mental health can present itself.
