Jeanne Segal

Jeanne Segal, Ph.D. (1939-2017)

Dr. Segal devoted her life to helping people improve their mental, emotional, and social health. Over the course of a nearly 50-year career, she made innumerable contributions to the mental health field, including groundbreaking work on emotional intelligence, holistic health, attachment, and childhood trauma. Her work has been honored with numerous community service awards and her books have been translated into sixteen languages.

She believed that each of us has the capacity to make life better for ourselves and others. HelpGuide was her great passion. Her goal was to ensure that HelpGuide continues to thrive and reach the millions of people it helps around the world. Please honor Jeanne’s memory and lifework with a memorial contribution to HelpGuide.
