Message from the Executive Director Donna Lamison

Welcome to National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) Butler County!

For those of you I haven’t had the pleasure to meet, I am Donna Lamison and I joined NAMI Butler County PA as the new Executive Director on February 3, 2020.

I was born and raised in Butler County and am very happy to have the opportunity to serve my community. I have many years of service in the nonprofit arena, having previously served as the Executive Director for the International Society for Bipolar Disorders (ISBD), Assistant Administrator for the Hospice and Palliative Nursing Association and Interim Director for the Children’s Health Network at Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

I am ready to help NAMI Butler move into the next phase of development as a vibrant grassroots organization and one that supports the families and loved ones most impacted by mental health disorders in those they love.
