Nominate Consumer/Peer Leaders

Nominate consumer/peer leaders and family members who promote family involvement in recovery and educate others about mental and/or substance use disorders.

Deadline Extended: All consumer/peer and family member nominations are now due Friday, May 13.

Do you know of a consumer/peer leader who has made outstanding contributions in educating the public about mental and/or substance use disorders? Nominate that person for a 2016 Voice Award.

Specifically, the awards program seeks to recognize individuals who have:

  • Personally demonstrated that recovery is real and possible
  • Led efforts to reduce the discrimination and misperceptions associated with mental health and substance use disorders
  • Made a positive impact on communities, workplaces, or schools

Do you know of family members who have been outstanding champions of their loved one’s recovery and addressing mental and/or substance use disorders in their community? Nominate them for a 2016 Voice Award as well.

This year, special consideration will be given to consumer/peer leaders and family members who promote meaningful family involvement as an essential part of recovery.

The Voice Awards program broadly defines “consumer/peer leader” as a person who has received or is receiving services for a mental and/or substance use disorder.
