ADMINISTRATIVE PSYCHIATRY AWARD

The Administrative Psychiatry Award was established in 1983 to honor an APA member who is a nationally
recognized clinician executive, whose effectiveness as an administrator of major mental health programs has
expanded the body of knowledge of management in the mental health services delivery system, and whose
effectiveness has made it possible for him/her to function as a role model for other psychiatrists. This award is
selected by the Committee on Administrative Psychiatry.

Here, you will find photos of our recent recipients of these awards as well as a list of our previous winners.
