Judge Joyce Campbell will continue her work with the NAMI National Board of Directors for an additional three years.

Joyce Campbell, Justice of Fairfield City Court, will continue her work among the country’s leaders in improving mental health awareness, standards and access to treatment.

Judge Campbell was recently re-elected to serve a three-year term on the national board of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). NAMI is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization devoted to the well-being of Americans affected by mental illness.

Judge Campbell was the first vice president of the board last year and the only legal representative on the 16-member panel, which consists mostly of psychiatrists and administrators.

“I am honored and humbled to serve three more years,” said Judge Campbell. “I enjoyed every moment that I spent on the board.”

Judge Campbell had been with the bank since 1999 and was one of the first lawyers in the state to set up a mental health court. Its Treatment Alternative Court (TAC) program has been running since January 2001. Like other Ohio Supreme Court certified technical files, TAC holds participants accountable as they address the underlying causes of their mental health problems.

Judge Campbell is also President of the NAMI Ohio Board of Directors, Chairman of the Ohio Judicial Conference, and a member of the Supreme Court’s Commission on Specialized Dockets.

“I have great pleasure in seeing the access and quality of mental health services improve for everyone who needs them,” said Judge Campbell. “I want to continue this very important work to accomplish our mission and live up to our values ​​for all people and their families affected by mental illness.”
