Does your organization believe in putting new ideas in action? Is your organization striving to define what clinical excellence means? Then apply today for a 2015 Connect 4 Mental Health Community Innovation Award.

The Connect 4 Mental Health (C4MH) Community Innovation Awards recognize four community mental health organizations that prioritize making a difference in the lives of people with serious mental illness. In addition to the national recognition of the award, each winner receives $10,000 and access to a one-on-one mentorship program for the year following the award.

Organizations that have effective intervention strategies and programs that fit into one of four service categories are encouraged to apply. These categories include:

  • Early Intervention
  • Creative Use of Technology
  • Continuity of Care
  • Service Integration

This is a great opportunity to highlight your organization’s efforts to a national audience while further supporting your community programs. Learn more and submit your application by July 17, 2015. Winners will be notified in October.

The National Council for Behavioral Health partners with the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), Otsuka Pharmaceutical & Commercialization, Inc. and Lundbeck on the Connect for Mental Health Community Impact Awards to honor and support organizations that make significant impacts in their communities for people with serious mental illness. Past awardees include the Robert Young Center, CrisisTextLine, the Charleston Dorchester Mental Health Center, NAMI Collier County, Henderson Behavioral Health, Vinfen, Mental Health America of Greater Los Angeles and the Center for Health Care Services.
