Dr. Fadi Maalof
Back to our team

I am a dedicated clinician and researcher specializing in Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, deeply committed to advancing mental health care and suicide prevention initiatives. Throughout my career, I have been fortunate to receive numerous prestigious honors and awards, recognizing my contributions to the field.

In 2006, I was honored with the Child and Adolescent Psychiatry Outstanding Resident award by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry (AACAP), a recognition that fueled my passion for research. The following year, I received the Pilot Research Award from AACAP, marking a significant milestone in my research journey.

My dedication to psychiatry was further acknowledged in 2008 when I was named one of America's Top Psychiatrists by the Consumers' Research Council of America. This acknowledgment of my expertise and commitment to patient care has been a driving force throughout my career.

In 2009, I was humbled to receive the Young Investigator Award from the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention (AFSP), which fueled my determination to deepen our understanding of suicide and mental health. Since then, I have been actively involved in various funded research projects, serving as Principal Investigator or Co-investigator.

My research endeavors have spanned a wide range of topics, from capacity building interventions for mental healthcare to resilience-building programs for school-age children. I have been fortunate to collaborate with esteemed colleagues and institutions, including the Harvard Medical School Center for Global Health Delivery, where I received Cooperative Research Awards in 2016 and 2018.

In addition to my research pursuits, I am deeply involved in academia, serving on the editorial boards of prestigious journals and participating in various review and research committees. Mentoring and guiding students, residents, and fellows in their scholarly and clinical endeavors brings me great joy and fulfillment.

Beyond academia, I am committed to community service and advocacy, leveraging my expertise to improve mental health outcomes at both local and global levels. My consultancy roles have allowed me to contribute to initiatives aimed at enhancing mental health services and awareness.

With a steadfast dedication to research, education, and advocacy, I continue to strive for excellence in the field of psychiatry, driven by a deep-seated passion to make a meaningful difference in the lives of individuals and communities affected by mental illness.
