Extended Deadlines for Award Nominations Approach

Four award deadlines have been extended. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) has pushed the deadline for 2013 Voice Award nominations to this Friday, March 29: “If you know a consumer/peer leader who has led efforts to promote the social inclusion of people with behavioral health problems; personally demonstrated that recovery is real and possible; and made a positive impact on his/her community, workplace, or school, please nominate him/her for a 2013 Voice Award.” The nomination form is available at the first source below. (Additionally, you can nominate a TV or film production that contains “a dignified, respectful, and accurate portrayal of people with mental health and/or substance use disorders.” The deadline for these nominations is April 15, 2013.) Meanwhile, Mental Health America (MHA) has just extended the deadline for its 2013 Sandy Brandt Volunteer, Youth Advocacy, and Clifford Beers awards to April 15. For more information about MHA’s awards, go to the second source below.
