Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW

Executive Director, Saint Louis Counseling


Ever been “told” to speak to the hand? The conversation-crushing gesture can impose the same sting as a tart slap across the cheek. Dismissing open dialogue often divides and damages mental-health-related issues – most especially, when conversation is the only way to understanding others’ situations and experiences.

Executive Director Tom Duff, MSW, LCSW speaks about what matters most in mental health matters. Without actively listening and being open to the possibility of seeing another side, without putting oneself in another’s shoes, without considering the greater good, the overall mental health of individuals and society suffers. At a cost. For the sake of bringing people together, it’s time for healthy dialogue. It’s time to talk less – and listen more.
