Event Speakers

Dawn Velligan, PhD
Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Chief of the Division of Community Recovery, Research and Training, and Henry B. Dielmann Chair, University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio

Dr. Dawn Velligan is a Professor in the Department of Psychiatry, Chief of the Division of Community Recovery, Research and Training, and Henry B. Dielmann Chair at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio. She has authored expert consensus guidelines on adherence to medication in serious mental illness and has demonstrated that Cognitive Adaptation Training (CAT) a unique treatment system designed to bypass the cognitive problems observed in serious mental illness improves medication adherence, community tenure and functional outcomes. Dr. Velligan’s latest work has included the development of shared decision-making coaching at a Transitional Care Clinic (TCC) to improve engagement in care for individuals transitioning out of emergency departments or inpatient psychiatric units.  The TCC has changed the face of clinical care in San Antonio and become a model for overburdened mental health care systems across the country.
