Faces in Between

By |

Five years ago, when I was living in New York City, I had the idea to create a non-profit organization called Faces in Between. As a psychiatrist working in a very busy emergency room in Manhattan, I met and treated homeless individuals every day. My idea in founding Faces in Between was to create a "face" and a "voice" for homeless persons, who otherwise tend to be ignored and treated as less than human by [...]

About the Author

Dr. Kendra Campbell, MD

Psychiatrist and Founder

I am a psychiatrist who thinks “outside of the medical box” and “colors outside of the lines.” I have worked in a variety of clinical settings including inpatient, outpatient, emergency rooms, forensics/jails, consultative services, and house calls. I completed most of my medical training in New York City, including my psychiatric residency at SUNY Downstate in Brooklyn and Public and Emergency Psychiatry fellowships at Columbia University in Manhattan. I worked for almost three years at the New York Presbyterian Hospital/Columbia University Comprehensive Psychiatric Emergency Program (CPEP/Psychiatric Emergency Room) as an attending psychiatrist and Assistant Director. I am board certified, although I do not believe that is what necessarily makes me an effective psychiatrist. I worked for years inside the world of “academic psychiatry” and for the “health insurance based” system. Unfortunately, this work ultimately led me to a life of burnout, fatigue, and despair. I have extensive training in the psychopharmacological (medication-based) treatment of mental illnesses. []
