2015 call for nominations. Nominate Now for SAMHSA's 2015 Voice Awards

Nominate Consumer/Peer Leaders

Join SAMHSA’s Voice Awards program in recognizing consumer/peer leaders who use their stories of resilience to educate others about behavioral health. 

If you know of a consumer/peer leader who has made outstanding contributions in educating the public about behavioral health, please nominate that person for a 2015 Voice Award.

Specifically, the awards program is seeking to recognize individuals who have:

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

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.
