2016 voice awards

Nominate Consumer/Peer Leaders

Nominations are no longer being accepted for the 2016 Voice Awards.

Family members who, with their loved ones, have championed recovery and addressed mental illness and/or substance use disorders in their community were eligible for the 2016 Voice Awards.

Specifically, the awards program sought 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
  • Promoted meaningful family involvement as an essential part of recovery
  • Demonstrated that families are defined in many ways and that all are welcome

Nominations were open to anyone. Individuals could submit as many nominations as they wished, and self-nominations were welcome.

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.
