Soberman’s Estate would like to congratulate our own Dr. Thomas Gazda for being honored by the American Psychiatric Association as a Distinguished Life Fellow. This recognition puts Dr. Gazda in an elite group of psychiatrists who are recognized as having made significant contributions to the field of psychiatry.
The founding of Soberman’s Estate was inspired by the loss of two men, including the owner’s brother and best friend. Mitch Prager’s best friend was Dr. Jerry Josen, and we’re pleased to share this article written by Dr. Josen’s daughter, Rachel Josen.

We can express our concerns about how suicide is a stigmatized cause of death that impacts death certificate accuracy. But no one can argue this: any number in any of these professions is just too high.”
