Washington, DC (May 28, 2008)—The National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare’s website at www.TheNationalCouncil.org won an international award for excellence in communication and creativity—a bronze in the 2008 Summit Creative Awards “Non-Profit Website” category.
“The award is a tribute to the National Council’s commitment to telling a compelling story using today’s interactive technologies,” said Linda Rosenberg, MSW, President and CEO of the National Council. “We envision a nation where everyone has access to effective mental health and addictions treatment and the supports essential to live, work, learn, and participate fully in their communities. Our website was designed to fully support this vision.”
The National Council’s website provides mental health and addictions treatment news, information, and resources for the public, media, policymakers, and healthcare providers. Of note are the “Real Stories, Real People” and the “Find a Provider” sections of the website. BrowserMedia, an interactive website development agency, won the Summit award for its work on the National Council’s site.
