Bob Myers, New York State Office of Mental Health Senior Deputy Commissioner, Division of Community Program Management and Managed Care has retired after a half century of leadership in community mental health. Bob championed a succession of OMH housing initiatives from “creating a continuum of care to the creation of a large OMH portfolio of licensed and unlicensed housing, including the three New York/New York Agreements.
At our conference, OMH Commissioner Ann Sullivan gave remarks in praise of Bob at our conference, “Bob has been and neve -ending voice for improving housing across New York State”.
Bob often joked that he would retire when OMH reached 50,000 housing units and with the inclusion of licensed and unlicensed supportive housing in the 2023 mental health initiative, the state will be very close to meeting that goal. The Network wishes Bob the best in retirement.
