I will never forget the day I learned that Sherlock Holmes died. I was nine. My mother was working late, and my father was making mashed potatoes for dinner. The story’s ominous title, “The Final Problem,” sent chills down my bones and I had a very bad feeling while reading it.
Here at New Harbinger, we strive to develop high quality, evidence-based, affordable tools for mental health, so that there is as little barrier to help as possible. We believe that mental healthcare is a human right, and for more than 40 years, our mission has always been to end the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Because we believe mental healthcare should be accessible to all, we decided to act. This month, we put up a Little Free Library outside our offices in Oakland, California, thereby offering free books to our local community.
