Shruti Malik, MHSA has a Masters in Healthcare Administration from Creighton University. She has worked in the mental health field as a clinical trials specialist. She is very concerned about the growing mental health epidemic and its devastating impact on our communities. The 2015 TriWest Omaha Adult Behavioral Health System of Care Assessment report caught her attention as it highlighted some critical mental health service gaps in our community. She quickly realized that today, more than ever, it is critical to disrupt and innovate our mental health systems so that everyone can benefit from high quality evidence based pharmacologic treatments. As the brainchild and driving force behind this venture, she also reminds herself and others to live with gratitude, which is important as it enables us to be optimistic and feel contented with life. For Shruti, giving and receiving is an invisible cycle. ‘As long as I have the ability, I wish to be the one starting a cycle of kindness and reap the rewards of helping others achieve their dreams’
