We had the distinct pleasure of interviewing Robert (Bob) Johnson, LCSW and CEO/President of The Samaritan Institute. I haven't received a hand written thank you card in a very long time. Bob wrote one to me after we met at The National Council for Behavioral Health conference in Seattle of 2017. A gentleman and forward thinker ready to take the institute to new heights and sheppard in technology, compliancy, and growth for the 60+ organizations under the Samaritan umbrella.
Robert (Bob) P. Johnson, MS, LCSW joined the Institute in July 2016. Prior to this, he served on the Institute Board of Directors, the Clergy and Congregation Care (CCC) Leadership Team, and has been a member of Leadership Consultation Group (LCG) II since its inception in 1998. Bob was the Executive Director of the American Foundation of Counseling Services, a Samaritan Center, located in Green Bay, Wisconsin from 1996 – 2016. During this time the Center grew from providing 5,000 hours of service annually to over 20,000 hours across three program areas: Outpatient Behavioral Health; Treatment Foster Care; and Clergy and Congregation Care. The Center has also become known as a leader in the development of collaborative working groups to address the mental health needs throughout the community. Bob holds a B.S. in Psychology from St. Norbert College and a MS in Clinical Psychology from University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh.
