Ann Marie Sullivan, MD
Candidate for APA Treasurer

I am honored to be nominated for Treasurer of the APA and would like to ask for your vote.  I see the Treasurer as having two main responsibilities. First, ensuring that the APA remains financially strong now and in the future, so that it is able to fulfill its mission to our profession and our patients. Second, as a member of the Board and its Executive Committee, being a voice and implementer for critical issues facing psychiatry today.

As current Chair of the Finance and Budget Committee, I am acutely aware of the financial strengths and challenges facing the APA and have been closely involved in ensuring its financial stability.  As a prior CEO of two public hospitals and currently as the Commissioner of the NY State Office of Mental Health, I have extensive experience in budgeting and financial planning for large organizations.  I have learned that mission, policy and program drive an organization, but fiscal integrity and planning are critical to its success.

It has been my pleasure to hold APA leadership positions throughout my career, as past Speaker of the Assembly and Area 2 Trustee, and to be part of an organization that fights daily for our profession and our patients.  We must continue to fight for parity in access to care for our patients and financial resources for quality care. We must fight to end discrimination against those living with mental illness, and fight for equality for all in treatment and opportunity. We must fight to right the wrong of so many with mental illness living in our jails and prisons.  And we must fight for our profession to be well trained and resourced for the future to provide the very best care.

If elected Treasurer it would be my honor to continue this fight with you!
