Congratulations to Dr. Charles "Chip" Millhuff on receiving the V.J. Reddy Memorial Award from the Kansas Community Mental Health Centers Organization of Medical Directors and Psychiatric Staff (KCOMPS).
The annual award recognizes a staff member of a community mental health center medical department who has made significant contributions to the field of mental health care and who exemplifies a commitment to compassionate care, life-long learning and professional development.
“Dr. Millhuff is an outstanding doctor, but most important, he’s a dedicated advocate for the children and families he treats. They always get the best care possible,” said Brenda Mills, Family Service & Guidance Center CEO. “This award is well-deserved.”
Dr. Millhuff completed his General Psychiatry and Child & Adolescent Psychiatry training at the Karl Menninger School of Psychiatry and was on staff at the Menninger Clinic before joining Family Service & Guidance Center in 1999. Throughout his career, he has been active in teaching and mentoring medical students and has a strong commitment to medical education and to fostering interest in the field of child psychiatry. Dr. Millhuff has extensive training and experience in early childhood psychopathology and is a recognized authority in this field, consulting with schools, mental health advocates, pediatric specialists and state agencies.
KCOMPS established the award in 2005 to honor the memory of the late Dr. V.J. Reddy, who served as Medical Director for Four County Mental Health Center, Independence, KS. The selection committee is comprised of past recipients.
Congratulations, Dr. Millhuff! All of your colleagues and patients are sincerely grateful for all you do.
