MHA honored Andrew Solomon, the award-winning writer and lecturer, Dr. Lisa Dixon, Director for Practice Innovations, New York State Psychiatric Institute, Willa Brody, Director of Government and Community Relations, NewYork Presbyterian Hospital and Ralph Lieblich, MHA volunteer. Some 160 guests celebrated the accomplished honorees and MHA’s 67th year serving the county’s mental health needs.

“It was an extraordinary night,” said Board President, Mike Lombardi, who co-chaired the event with his wife, Kate Stone Lombardi, “MHA has made many friends during its long history in Westchester and we were glad to have so many of them join us to celebrate.”

CEO, Dr. Amy Kohn agreed: “MHA is buoyed by the spirit of nights such as this one. Feeling the support for what we do by those that attend is precious to me, the board of directors and the staff as well.  It’s an effort that helps make MHA’s many services available and accessible to the community.”
