Recognizing Albertans leading the way in mental health and addiction programs and services
Nominations are now open for the 2016 True Awards from the Lieutenant Governor’s Circle on Mental Health and Addiction. The awards honour successful efforts to reduce stigma, encourage recovery and strengthen programs and services in the area of mental health and addiction.
“Individuals and teams across Alberta are finding inspiring ways to address mental health and addiction challenges and to create positive change for the benefit of us all. I look forward to hearing their stories and honouring their accomplishments.”
The nomination deadline is Monday, April 4, 2016 and nominations are open to the public. The five award categories recognize individuals with lived experience, program and service providers, and leaders and innovators from the public, not-for-profit and private sectors. Organizations that do not specialize in mental health and addictions but have developed an internal or external program on mental health may also be nominated.
Nomination forms, program details and information about past recipients are at www.lgcircle.ca.
Those selected for a True Award will receive their award from the Lieutenant Governor at a ceremony in Edmonton in October. All nominees will receive a certificate of appreciation and will also be recognized at the ceremony.
