SILVER SPRING, MD - Dr. Marion Primas is a Retired Senior Public Health Advisor who worked with the United States Department of Health and Human Services for over 47 plus years.

“When I became interested in the mental health field I steadfastly devoted myself to research in my field,” says Dr. Primas. 

Born in Alabama, Dr. Primas proudly became the first black valedictorian of her graduating high school. Dr. Primas attained her Bachelor’s Degree in Experimental Psychology from Morgan State University, a Ph.D in Human Development from the University of Maryland, and a Master’s Degree in Experimental Psychology from Howard University where she became Assistant Professor at Howard University and taught psychology till shewas recruited to the National Institute of Health.

Dr. Primas continuously encourages young people to go into the mental health arena. Considering the widespread drug use and staggering obesity rates, a principal reason for diseases and mental health issues, there is certainly a dire need for more qualified people to enter the field. 

“I am 81 years old and getting older absolutely does not discourage me, if fact I make sure to eat very healthy food and when I walk my beloved dog I am getting the best exercise ever,” says Dr. Primas.

Dr. Primas believes what is forlornly lacking in this world is more love and compassion for one another and all animals. God created the universe including animals and Dr. Primas sees beauty in all His creation. 

For Dr. Primas people who love the Lord and are philanthropic towards all individuals and animals are especially exceptional people that the world absolutely needs.

“I urge everyone when you need help talk to God,” says Marion. “My life mission is to encourage every human to pray to the Lord and He will always be there to help you.”
