Under the radar for many, for the 20th consecutive year, NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is here at the annual conference to honor some of the APA’s members for the dedication to people living with mental illness. This year, 22 doctors are receiving the NAMI Exemplary Psychiatrist Award, among NAMI’s highest honor because nominations are made by people who need their help the most—individuals and families who are personally affected by mental illness.
Today, we honored psychiatrists who have “gone the extra mile” in their commitment to their professional, most importantly, to the communities and the lives of those they help.
As the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization, we send a NAMI ‘congratulations’ to Ira D. Glick, M.D.; Michael T. Compton, M.D.; Branko Radulovacki, M.D.; Mary Lynn Tyson, M.D.; J. Raymond DePaulo, Jr., M.D.; Alvin B. Michaels, M.D.; RP Rajarethinam, M.D.; Paul F. Goering, M.D.; Jeffrey T. Hardwig, M.D.; Stephen Olson, M.D.; Nancy T. Block, M.D.; Vesudev N. Makhija, M.D.; Margaret Tompsett, M.D.; Nils Rosenbaum, M.D.; Lewis A. Opler, M.D.; Nicholas E. Stratas,M.D.; Shivkumar S. Hatti, M.D.; Mathew Sipple, D.O.; Jacqueline Bickham, M.D.; John Oldham, M.D.; Thomas A. Simpatico, M.D.; and James Reinhard, M.D.
