Phyllis Vine, PhD
Phyllis Vine is a journalist and historian, and former college professor who has been writing about mental health policy and social activism for forty years. She received her Ph.D. at the University of Michigan, and her MPH at Columbia University, and for many years taught at Sarah Lawrence College before she resigned to more actively pursue research and writing. She is a co-author of one book, author of three, and her writing has appeared in The Washington Post, Ms., Slate, Progressive, The Nation, Extra!, City Limits, as well as peer-reviewed journals. Phyllis discovered Gould Farm when researching options for a recovery-oriented treatment program for a family member, and has been on the Board since 2011. Recently, with her husband, she moved from Hastings on Hudson, New York, to West Stockbridge, Mass., to enjoy retirement — or quasi-retirement -- in the Berkshires. She is a proud parent (of two adults and their families), and grandmother (of one).
