About Lucy Ozarin

Lucy Ozarin was a force to be reckoned with in the world of psychology. Born on August 18, 1914, in New York City, she went on to become a pioneering figure in the field of mental health.

Ozarin earned her undergraduate degree from Hunter College and her PhD from Columbia University. She went on to work at the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), where she conducted groundbreaking research on schizophrenia and other mental illnesses.

One of Ozarin's most notable contributions to the field was her work on the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM). She served as the chair of the DSM-III Task Force, which was responsible for revising and updating the manual in the 1980s. The DSM-III was a major milestone in the field of mental health, as it provided a standardized system for diagnosing and treating mental illnesses.

Ozarin was also a fierce advocate for women in science. She was a founding member of the Association for Women in Science and served as the president of the American Psychological Association's Division of Clinical Psychology.

Throughout her career, Ozarin received numerous awards and honors for her contributions to the field of psychology. She passed away in 2001, but her legacy lives on through her groundbreaking research and advocacy work.
