Helen Fagan at TEDxLincoln: Diagnosed with PTSD and MDD, and managing to get a Ph.D.

Watch my TED Talk!

Helen Fagan has over 25 years of experience in the Human Resource Field and has been on every non-profit board you can think of in Lincoln. She was instrumental in the development of the Interpreter Training Program at Southeast Community College, and has helped address numerous employment and healthcare needs of refugees and immigrants in our community.

And then in 2007 it all changed. Helen was diagnosed with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder and Severe Clinical Depression. Helen’s health caused her life to take a major detour. Helen will share the pain, lessons and insights, in hopes of inspiring others to open their minds to new possibilities.
