“I am honored and grateful to have been elected by my fellow members to help lead the APA,” Levounis said in a media release. “I look forward to helping build APA’s leadership role in mental health both within American medicine and in collaboration with our colleagues across the world.”

“Congratulations to Dr. Levounis and the other candidates on their election,” said APA President Vivian Pender, M.D. “I look forward to working with these enthusiastic and dedicated newly elected APA leaders in the coming years to advance the important efforts of the APA and its members.”

“Dr. Levounis’ leadership and commitment will greatly benefit the APA,” said APA CEO and Medical Director Saul Levin, M.D., M.P.A. “APA members and the profession of psychiatry will be well served by his guidance and leadership. I also want to personally congratulate all the winners and to salute the other candidates.”

Levounis’ term as president-elect of APA will begin in May at the conclusion of the APA Annual Meeting, when current President-Elect Rebecca Brendel, M.D., J.D., begins her one-year term as president. The other winners will also take office at that time.
