Suzanne Vogel-Scibilia, M.D., of Pennsylvania is New NAMI Board President

New Board Members Also Elected from California, Connecticut, Pennsylvania and South Carolina

Arlington, VA – Delegates to the recent national convention of the National Alliance for the Mentally Ill (NAMI) in Austin, Texas elected four new members to the organization’s board of directors, along with one incumbent, to three-year terms.

NAMI also inaugurated a new executive committee leadership team, with Suzanne Vogel-Scibilia, M.D. of Beaver, Pennsylvania chosen to succeed Margaret Stout of Iowa as president of the 16-member board.

"NAMI has tirelessly advanced the cause of persons with mental illness, their families and friends for over 26 years," Vogel-Scibilia said. "We look forward to more successes in the coming years involving our goals of advocacy, support, education, and research."

A clinical psychiatrist, Vogel-Scibilia operates an independent mental health clinic. She has had bipolar disorder since the age of fifteen.

Vogel-Scibilia, is also a Clinical Assistant Professor at Western Psychiatric Institute and serves on the faculty of two community hospitals. She stays very active leading local peer education and support groups and acts in an advisory capacity for national organizations.

"Since I am a consumer, a family member and a provider," Vogel-Scibilia said, "I reflect the broad perspective that NAMI brings to our important advocacy movement."
