Schroeder Stribling, M.S.W. '92, has been named president and chief executive officer of Mental Health America (MHA). Mental Health America is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and promoting the overall mental health of all.

Stribling joins MHA after 18 years at N Street Village, a nonprofit providing housing support services for women and families in Washington, DC.

Said MHA Board Chair Peter Carson about Stribling, "She will lead Mental Health America through a period of national recovery when mental health services are in greater demand than at any time in history.”

“I am honored to be joining MHA as President and CEO and I look forward to leading the organization into the future with the urgency and dedication required of us at this time. We face a unique and critical moment in our national history as we emerge from the collective trauma of the pandemic, contend with a dramatic escalation in reports of depression among our youth, and begin a new and long overdue reckoning with racial injustice and violence. In all of this, mental health will take center stage,” said Stribling.
