About Me

I am a psychiatrist, public health doctor and non-fiction writer. I have published 13 books, the first seven for medical professionals and the more recent six for an educated, lay audience.  I am working on my 14th. I have published ~500 articles for print and on-line publications, including the NYT, WSJ, Atlantic, Commonweal, US News and World Report (where I wrote an Opinion column for 2+ years), The HuffPost (>200 articles, and where I was Medical Editor for Mental Health), Psychology Today (>100 articles), Medscape, and other publications. I founded and directed Columbia Psychiatry Media, where I worked with a number of national educational organizations. I taught non-fiction writing at Columbia Medical School/Department of Psychiatry to doctors and scientists (trainees and faculty) for 18 sequential semesters, always over-subscribed.

I have produced or appeared on quite a many audio and video podcasts, and until Covid was a frequent public speaker.

I am an Adjunct Professor at the Columbia University School of Public Health; have been Medical Director/EVP of McLean Hospital, a Harvard Teaching Hospital; Director of Clinical Services for the American Psychiatric Association; Mental Health Commissioner for NYC (in the Bloomberg administration); and Chief Medical Officer for the NY Office of Mental Heath (the largest state mental health agency in the country, with an annual budget of ~3.5 billion. 

There is more, like awards and what-not, but this may be enough for this introduction?
