The Naomi Ruth Cohen Foundation was founded in 2002 by Larry and Marilyn Cohen as a tribute to their daughter, Naomi, who took her own life after struggling with bipolar disorder. In 2008, the foundation formally affiliated with The Chicago School and became the The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute for Mental Health Education. The Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute regularly partners with mental health professionals to promote education, anti-discrimination, and advocacy as a means of reducing the stigma of mental illness. Since its beginning, the Naomi Ruth Cohen Institute has reached thousands of community members through conferences, workshops, and other outreach programming.
