from our leadership
A Welcome from Stephen (Larry) Mecham, DO, President 2022-2023
As an early career physician, with a passion to make a difference for psychiatry and our patients through impactful advocacy and collaboration in our community, I am thankful for each and every member who takes the time to be engaged, get to know their local legislators, contribute to conversations at the state and national level, and work together to promote improvements in care, physician well-being, and patient safety. If you are a non-member psychiatric physician, I invite you to make the choice today to join us in this important work, to be part of making a difference for our patients and our profession.
We invite you to contribute to the work of the Society, through your membership, and engage further by joining our committees, serving as a Chair or executive officer, and working collaboratively with fellow mental health stakeholder advocacy organizations. Together, we can work to make a difference for our profession and the patients for whom we provide care.
