Seana O’Callaghan

President & CEO
"I am very excited to champion the Open Excellence mission of supporting innovative research that shines light on the benefits and pathways to a person-centered and community-centered mental health care system which supports human flourishing."

Seana O’Callaghan began her work in community mental health at the Nathan Kline Institute in the Department of Statistics and Services research over 15 years ago. There and at non-profit organizations dedicated to improving mental health services and ending homelessness, she gained experience in mixed methods research, grants administration and grant writing, project management and intervention research development. She has worked independently as a grant writing consultant in the fields of housing and public mental health, and established and operated a successful private retail and service business. Ms. O’Callaghan is currently based in Berlin, Germany.
