Terri White Is the New CEO at Mental Health Association Oklahoma

Jul 9, 2020

Our guest is Terri White, who left her post as the Commissioner of Oklahoma's Department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse Services earlier this year. A well-respected expert on, and advocate for, all matters of mental health, White had been appointed Commissioner in 2007; she originally joined the Department in 2001. White joins us to discuss her new post, which will be serving as the CEO of the vital statewide nonprofit, Mental Health Association Oklahoma, which is based in Tulsa. She'll replace Mike Brose, who led MHAOK for some 27 years. White speaks with us about her extensive, award-winning background in mental health, drug abuse, and addiction services -- and about her plans for Mental Health Association Oklahoma going forward.
