Donna Duffy-Bell Receives Montgomery County Mental Health Award

Donna Duffy-Bell cropped Donna Duffy-Bell, Executive Director of Rehabilitation Services at Penn Foundation, was chosen as
the 2012 recipient of the Dr. Robert H. Miller Award, the highest acknowledgement bestowed by the
Montgomery County Department of Behavioral Health and Developmental Disabilities.

This annual award recognizes an individual who has made a long-term commitment to the mental
health field and whose involvement, service, and contributions to the improvement of the quality
of life of persons with mental illness are worthy and exceptional. Additionally, the award recipient
must exemplify the caring, compassion, respect, flexibility, and trustworthiness of the late Dr. Miller.

“Throughout her 28 years at Penn Foundation, Donna has been a faithful advocate for and partner with individuals in realizing their recovery and life goals in the community,” says Penn Foundation President & CEO Wayne Mugrauer. “Because she believes that everyone is capable of growth and an improved quality of life, Donna has been a leader in establishing creative ways to support people in the community.”

Duffy-Bell was nominated for the award by her colleague, Karen Kern, Executive Director of Mental Health Services (and 2006 award recipient). As Kern wrote in her nomination, “Donna is a caring and compassionate leader who is dedicated to supporting others and making a positive difference. Throughout her work, she has championed for quality services that facilitate choice for individuals so they can establish and achieve their recovery goals.”
