The National Alliance on Mental Illness North Carolina (NAMI NC), a nonprofit dedicated to providing support, education, advocacy, and public awareness so that all affected by mental illness can build better lives, has announced the selection of Jack Register, MSW, as its new executive director. Register will fill the vacancy created by Deby Dihoff’s retirement in December.
Register, a former NAMI NC board member, has a breadth experience in the direct care of those with mental illness and understands the public service sector well. He also has advocacy experience, being the former government relations director for the NC chapter of the National Association of Social Workers. There, he was the advocate and organizer who worked with NAMI and many partner organizations on system reform.
