Headshot of Mary Barber, AWP President.jpgHello, wonderful AWP women!

For those of you who don't know me, let me introduce myself as I begin my term as your president. I have been in practice for 20 years, always in public settings. I trained at New York Hospital-Payne Whitney Clinic for residency, and then did the Columbia Public Psychiatry Fellowship. I am presently Clinical Director at a large state hospital system a little north of Manhattan, Rockland Psychiatric Center. My other professional hat is teaching, speaking and writing on LGBT mental health. And at home, I am a wife to Alleyne, a neurosurgeon in private practice, and mother to two teenage daughters. We are currently celebrating that our marriage is now recognized in all 50 states, and helping our older daughter to get ready to go off to college in the fall. Read More
