Mental Health America Logo President and Chief Executive Officer

Mental Health America (MHA) is launching a search for its next President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). Since its founding in 1909, MHA’s mission has been to promote mental health for all. Its focus is prevention for all; early identification and intervention for those at risk; integrated health, behavioral health, and other services and supports for those who need them; with recovery as the goal.

Since 2014, its guiding message has been characterized by the B4Stage4 (Before Stage Four) philosophy: that mental health and substance use conditions are the only conditions we wait until stage four to treat, as a matter of public policy, and we must act before stage four. At the foundation of MHA’s program, policy, and advocacy work is its commitment to antiracism. MHA characterizes racism and antiracism not as terms of judgment about individuals, but as descriptive terms that can be applied to public policies, as well as public and private systems and practices.

MHA is seeking a visionary leader who will work closely with the Board of Directors to set long-term objectives and policy directions for the largest mental health group in the U.S. The President and CEO will guide MHA’s response to the current economic and political climate, including how the organization’s programs and services will need to adapt to meet current challenges. The role includes extensive outreach, as well as ongoing support for MHA’s network of state and local affiliates.

Chief Science Officer

The Innovation and Value Initiative Foundation, Inc. (IVI) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization advancing the science of—and improving the practice of—value assessment in healthcare. Since its creation, IVI has focused its mission on improving the science and practice of value assessment in healthcare. IVI is a membership organization with both organization and individual members. Revenues for 2019 were in the $2.6 million range. While IVI is headquartered in Alexandria, VA, it has embraced a virtual staffing model from the start. As such, this position can be based anywhere in the continental U.S. Currently, staff are located throughout the country.

IVI is working to raise the level of discussion of value in healthcare and is also working to find common ground in approaches to measuring value through research, method development, scientific communication, and engagement. The U.S health system is diverse, complex, and ripe for innovation in the value space, and IVI is uniquely positioned to challenge outdated thinking and methodologies.

In support of this mission, IVI is seeking a Chief Science Officer (CSO) who will develop a strategic portfolio of research projects that advance patient-centered and flexible value assessment. These projects will impact the overall discussion of healthcare value assessment, as well as provide value to the key stakeholders within the space. The CSO will develop and engage a diverse network of researchers in academic, think tank, and clinical organizations that can accelerate the execution of IVI research projects. In addition, the CSO will collaborate with leading scientific and economics advisors to ensure fidelity to methods and processes as the organization evolves. Key to all of this will be developing a network of partners that provide diverse perspectives from the scientific and academic communities, as well as from the health economics arena.
