Rosalie Greenberg, M.D., a board-certified Child and Adolescent Psychiatrist whose private practice is located in Summit, New Jersey accepted the 2012 NAMI Exemplary Psychiatrist Award recognizing the remarkable work she has done in her field.

Started in 1990, the Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards program allows NAMI members, NAMI State Organizations and NAMI Affiliates throughout the country to honor publicly the exceptional contributions that many psychiatrists make to improve the lives of people living with mental illness. All of the nominations are submitted through a NAMI State Organization or NAMI Affiliate office.  Many psychiatrists have described this award as one of the most important honors that they can receive because it comes from the people who need their help the most- people whose lives are affected by mental illness.  The criteria for these awards recognize psychiatrists who have gone the extra mile with NAMI members and have made substantial contributions to NAMI Affiliate or NAMI State Organization activities.
