Welcome New Behavioral Health Unit Leaders for Wilmington, New Bern and Knoxville!

Please welcome three new Behavioral Health leaders, that joined RHA in June 2019.

Brian Mingia
Meet New Wilmington BH Director, Brian Mingia, MHA

Brian joins RHA as our new Director of Wilmington, NC Unit.

"My overall goal is to assist individuals in Wilmington and surrounding communities in gaining access to appropriate care to improve their lives. I look forward to playing a part in serving those individuals in our community through developing system of compassionate services, and I am honored to be part of the team," said Brian.

"I think we have a great opportunity to more fully establish RHA as a community leader in providing quality Mental Health and Substance Use care. With this opportunity, I believe the focus should be to make sure that all of our teams have a voice within Eastern NC and to be a trusted resource."

"I would say on a personal note I have recently moved to the Wilmington area from Swansboro, my wife is Randi, we have a 7 month old son named Leland, and I'm a die-hard NC State fan."

Annie Beck

Welcome Annie Beck, M.S., LPC, NCC, Our New Bern Director & Clinical Program Manager

Annie joins RHA in a hybrid role, serving as both the operational Director and as Clinical Program Manager for the New Bern unit.

"I am very excited and feel fortunate that I am part of the New Bern team!', said Annie.  "I look forward to enhancing the services already being delivered, building meaningful and purposeful relationships within the immediate community and surrounding communities, while ensuring the New Bern team feels as though they are supported and a part of something special."

"For approximately 17 years, I have been lucky enough to work within a variety of programs, all with diverse populations, such as; county, government contractor, as well as private agency. Before joining the RHA team, I was living in Hawaii working as a Director of a UCLA program that supported two different military bases, as well as working part-time group fitness instructor at a local gym. However, just like any other military family, we received orders and had to move.  Hence, the start of my journey with RHA!".

A favorite quote of Annie' is by Hellen Keller, who said, “Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much.”
