Two Minnesota Psychiatrists Honored

Minnesota psychiatrists Dr. Eduardo Colon and Dr. Dionne Hart have been selected to receive Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards by the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI). The awards recognize psychiatrists who have “gone the extra mile” in caring for their patients and providing outstanding treatment. Both psychiatrists were nominated for the national awards by NAMI Minnesota.

Dr. Eduardo Colon is chief of psychiatry at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis since 2016, and has been a longtime instructor at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Colon has worked to reduce stigma, and to try to solve the bottleneck at HCMC, which just opened a new crisis home to help alleviate the problem. He also developed HCMC’s new Psychiatry Family Resource Center with input and collaboration with NAMI Minnesota.

Dr. Dionne Hart is a psychiatry specialist working in Rochester who was named Psychiatrist of the Year by the Minnesota Psychiatric Society in 2014. She has been an incredible leader for mental health care and has sought out opportunities to partner with NAMI Minnesota to provide education and support. She has also been a voice in closing disparities in communities of color and advocating for mental health treatment in the federal prison system.
