He serves as the chair of the Mental Health Services Council of New York State and on the Commissioner’s Medical Advisory Panel of the Office of Alcoholism and Substance Abuse Services; he is also chair of the Section on Psychiatry at the New York Academy of Medicine.
Borenstein has received APA’s Special Presidential Commendation Award, the National Alliance on Mental Illness of New York State Connie Lieber Research Award, the Queensboro Council for Social Welfare Outstanding Service Award, and the Federation of Organizations Community Mental Health Man of the Year Award. He is a graduate of Harvard University and New York University School of Medicine.
“I am passionate about the mission of Psychiatric News and am honored to serve as editor in chief,” Borenstein said following his appointment. “ Psychiatric News is the most trusted source of information for APA members, other health professionals, and the public about developments in the field of psychiatry that impact clinical care and professional practice. I am looking forward to working with our outstanding professional staff to continue to enhance the content of Psychiatric News and reach our readers through new technology as well as the redesigned print version.
“I hope to receive feedback from our members so that Psychiatric News can continue to be the first and last word in psychiatry,” Borenstein said. He can be reached at email@example.com.
