Our SWEET Story
It was March 6, 2017, when Mardoche Sidor, a psychiatrist, and Karen Dubin-McKnight, a social worker, sat for their usual work-lunch meeting. This time something weighed heavy on their hearts: “I am tired of seeing all these dedicated clinicians and advocates, so passionate and brilliant, end up burntout,” says one. “Yes, it’s frustrating. They stand for a cause, work hard, seek the client’s best interest, and yet they and their agencies are deprived of the space they need to make an impact,” added the other.
Mardoche and Karen agreed that something had to be done and teamed up to work on adding value to clinicians, advocates, and their agencies. Little did they know that was the beginning of the SWEET Institute.
