Devereux Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Yolanda Graham, M.D., was recently awarded Distinguished Fellow status by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.

Devereux Advanced Behavioral Health Senior Vice President and Chief Clinical/Medical Officer Yolanda Graham, M.D., was recently awarded Distinguished Fellow status by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP).

Distinguished Fellow status is a lifetime designation, and the highest honor bestowed upon members of AACAP who have made significant contributions in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

“I am incredibly honored to receive this recognition,” said Dr. Graham, who serves as president-elect of the Regional Council of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry of Eastern Pennsylvania and Southern New Jersey. “I earned Distinguished Fellow status with the American Psychiatric Association years ago, and achieving this prestigious status with AACAP is very meaningful. I join a long list of mentors and colleagues who have paved the way for progress in child and adolescent psychiatry, and I look forward to future opportunities to make a positive difference in the lives of youth and families.”

Supporting those in need

Dr. Graham has dedicated her career to supporting children, adolescents and adults with emotional, behavioral and cognitive differences. She is board certified in general psychiatry and child and adolescent psychiatry, and is an expert in the areas of: mental health, child advocacy, psychotropic medication management, behavioral management, and childhood sexual exploitation and trauma. Her impact is felt every day within the walls of Devereux and beyond.

Look below to read excerpts from (AACAP Distinguished Fellow) letters of recommendation written by colleagues in the field of child and adolescent psychiatry.

“Dr. Graham has been a leader in the field and a continuous contributor to AACAP. … Her career has been dedicated to serving those most in need at the residential level of care. A notable program for which she has been a pioneer and national leader has been the residential programs for youth who have experienced sexual exploitation and trafficking.”
Tami Benton, M.D., Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia psychiatrist-in-chief

“I have known Dr. Graham for many years; we have worked together at Emory University, as well as in other professional activities and organizations. She has positively contributed to the field of child and adolescent psychiatry throughout her career. … Dr. Graham is a national leader and has been instrumental in leadership activities within her institution, as well as working with local, regional, state, national professional and community organizations on clinical, administrative and educational initiatives related to child mental health.”
