NYCPS is proud to announce that Dr. Karinn A. Glover, M.D. is the recipient of the 2018 Dr. Ivan Goldberg Outstanding Service Award. She was nominated by Dr. Linda Freeman. Dr. Glover is committed to reaching out to the community and non-medical professionals to improve patient care, build understanding of mental health, and destigmatize mental illness.

In addition to providing bilingual treatment to her patients, she is an expert in collaborative care. She has forged relationships with primary care physicians as well as allied health professionals to expand mental health care access in underserved populations. Dr. Glover has also developed and incorporated new technologies such as screening algorithms and telephonic psychiatric consultations to improve patient care.

Dr. Glover has given countless talks to psychiatrists and nonmedical professionals alike on a wide range of topics including destigmatizing mental illness, self-care, and mindfulness. She has appeared on podcasts and used social media to spread mental health knowledge in new and innovative ways such as creating Facebook videos for the public on the mental health system.

Dr. Glover exemplifies the innovative and pioneering spirit of Dr. Goldberg’s work. Her use of new models and technologies to bridge the gap between psychiatrists, patients, other physicians, and the larger community has benefited society as a whole.

About the Dr. Ivan Goldberg Award

The New York County Psychiatric Society invites its members to nominate potential candidates for the Dr. Ivan Goldberg Outstanding Service Award. This award, given by the New York County Psychiatric Society, commemorates the unique and novel contributions made by the late Dr. Goldberg to the field of psychiatry. Dr. Goldberg was the consummate New York City psychiatrist; an expert psychopharmacologist, and a psychotherapist in private practice, who held various academic appointments and was the medical director of the New York City Mood Disorders Support Group. He was a pioneer in disseminating psychiatric knowledge to mental health professionals and to the lay public. He established an encyclopedic website, Depression Central, as well as several renowned psychiatry listservs, which continue to educate mental health professionals worldwide today.

Nominees should demonstrate the pioneering spirit of Dr. Goldberg’s work; to make psychiatric knowledge accessible to all. We welcome candidates from all backgrounds, who work in any type of setting, clinical or non-clinical, and whether or not they are affiliated with any academic institution. The ideal candidate will be someone who has found innovative ways to educate others about psychiatry and issues related to mental health. We define this as broadly as possible to include those with expertise in neuroscience, to those with expertise in psychotherapy. A nominee may be someone who is using the latest technological advances in teaching psychiatry to future physicians, or someone who began a grassroots movement that is changing how society perceives mental illness, or someone working to change the public perception of psychiatry.
