NAMI Massachusetts is pleased to announce that Dr. Ken Duckworth will present the keynote at this year’s annual state Convention! Dr. Duckworth’s keynote will be entitled Dream Big, Act Now: Know the Science.
Ken Duckworth, M.D., is the Medical Director at the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). His journey into psychiatry started when he was a boy growing up with a dad who experienced severe bipolar disorder. His father was loving, kind and periodically quite ill, hospitalized for months at a time. Ken became a psychiatrist in part to help his father. He is very fortunate to serve as the Medical Director for NAMI and to be part of this remarkable community.
Along with his work at NAMI, Ken also works to improve care at Blue Cross/Blue Shield of Massachusetts, volunteers and consults at an early psychosis clinic at the Massachusetts Mental Health Center, and teaches as an assistant clinical professor at Harvard University Medical School.
Ken is double-board certified in adult and child/adolescent psychiatry and has completed a forensic psychiatry fellowship.
