Our Team

David Conant-Norville, MD

Physician, Child & Adolescent Psychiatry

Hillsboro & West Linn

Dr. David Conant-Norville M.D. co-founded Mind Matters PC in 2001 after realizing the need for a multi-disciplinary care clinic to provide comprehensive mental health care for persons of all ages. He is a medical physician, double board-certified child and adolescent psychiatry and general psychiatry, and has been honored by the American Psychiatric Association as a Distinguished Life Fellow and by the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry as a Distinguished Fellow. As a member of the Mind Matters PC management team, Dr. Conant-Norville currently serves as President and Clinical Director.

 

A lifelong Oregonian, Dr. Conant-Norville grew up in southeast Portland. He attended Stanford University majoring in Human Biology and returned to Oregon to attend medical school at Oregon Health and Sciences University (OHSU).

After completing a residency program in General Psychiatry and a fellowship program in Child & Adolescent Psychiatry at OHSU, Dr. Conant-Norville and his family moved to Pendleton, Oregon in 1987 where he became the first Child & Adolescent Psychiatric Physician to live and work in Eastern Oregon. In 1993, he returned to live in the Portland area, but continued to regularly travel to Pendleton to provide psychiatric care for the region. Due to the COVID pandemic, Mind Matters PC closed their Pendleton clinic, but Dr. Conant-Norville continues to provide care to the Northeast Oregon and Southeast Washington community via telemedicine. Dr. Conant-Norville is medically licensed in both Oregon and Washington.

Because of Dr. Conant-Norville’s extensive experience using video conferencing to connect to eastern Oregon patients for over 20 years, the 100% practice transition to telemedicine in March 2020 due to the COVID 19 pandemic has been successful. When the pandemic significantly lessens in the Pacific N.W. we hope to soon be able to provide both telemedicine and in-person appointments.

Dr. Conant-Norville has a passion for sports psychiatry and has given many lectures at local, national, and international psychiatric meetings on the state of youth sports, anti-doping in sport, and ADHD and the athlete, among other topics. Additionally, he has authored multiple professional articles on these subjects. He is particularly interested in sport as a treatment modality for psychiatric illness. Dr. Conant-Norville served for many years on the board of directors for the International Society for Sports Psychiatry (ISSP), as Outreach Director as well as chair of the ISSP Youth Sports Committee. More recently, he has been interested in anti-racism in sport as well as his continuing interest in building youth sport experiences that enhance mental wellness.

Dr. Conant-Norville is a psychiatric consultant to the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA), as well as the PGA and LPGA Tour Anti-Doping Program.  He has contributed to the International Olympic Committee’s Mental Health Training program for health professionals with lectures on ADHD and the Elite Athlete and the Youth Athlete and Mental Health. Currently he serves on the U.S. Olympic and Paralympic Committee’s Mental Health Directory and the NFL Players Association Clinician Directory.

Dr. Conant-Norville has enjoyed participating in many team and individual sports during his childhood and adolescence which prepared him to play collegiate soccer at Stanford University. He also has coached Middle school competitive soccer. In 2009, he took up Taekwondo and is currently 3rd degree blackbelt.

Dr. Conant-Norville enjoys hiking, biking, kayaking, traveling, and enjoying all that life in Oregon has to offer.
