- Personally demonstrated that recovery is real and possible
- Led efforts to reduce the prejudice and discrimination associated with behavioral health conditions
- Made a positive impact on communities, workplaces, or schools
Similarly, if you know of a television or film production that aired in a public setting after April 15, 2014, that contains a positive behavioral health storyline, please nominate it for a 2015 Voice Award.
