(12-18-19) Daniel H. Gillison Jr., has been named Chief Executive Officer of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, the nation’s largest and wealthiest grassroots mental health organization. His selection was announced today at 2 p.m., shortly after the national staff was informed.
He takes the reins from Angela Kimball, who became acting CEO after the abrupt resignation of previous CEO Mary Gilliberti in April. Kimball was widely credited by NAMI insiders for keeping up morale in the national office located in Arlington, Va., after Giliberti was asked by the board to resign. Kimball had been a candidate for the CEO job.
For the past three years, Gillison has directed the American Psychiatric Association’s Foundation, the philanthropic and public education arm of the APA. He is NAMI’s first African American CEO.
