Dr. Rochelle Head-Dunham was appointed Interim Assistant Secretary for the Office of Behavioral Health (OBH) on October 18, 2013; she was confirmed by the Louisiana Legislature on June 2, 2014.

Dr. Head-Dunham began her career with DHH in 1990 as Medical Director for the Office of Behavioral Health, formerly the Office of Addictive Disorders. Dr. Head-Dunham's position within OBH, and as the Louisiana Single State Agency (SSA) Director for the National Association of Alcohol and Drug Abuse Directors (NASADAD) and as State Mental Health Commissioner of the National Association of State Mental Health Program Directors (NASMHPD), has fostered many innovative changes within the new construct of statewide managed behavioral healthcare for the state of Louisiana.

Dr. Head-Dunham completed her Bachelors of Science at Xavier University and her MD at Tulane University School of Medicine. She has double board certifications in Adult Psychiatry and Addiction Psychiatry, which have advanced the skills, knowledge and application of standards of care in the treatment of co-occurring mental illness and addictive disorders for a broad array of providers and stakeholders, both statewide and nationally.
