The advocacy group National Alliance on Mental Illness North Carolina has named Jack Register its new executive director.
Register replaces Deby Dihoff, who retired in December after eight years with the nonprofit. NAMI NC has been active in the debate over improving mental health treatment in the state.
Register is a former government relations director for the state chapter of the National Association of Social Workers and a former NAMI NC board member. Register worked most recently at UNC-Greensboro in the Department of Social Work.
“Jack will bring leadership and creativity to NAMI NC’s programs and a deep sense of commitment to our mission,” said Mike Mayer, president of the organization’s board. “He has extensive experience in nonprofit management and program development, in addition to his work as a social worker.”
