The 2016 Voice Awards event will take place on August 10, 2016, at UCLA's Royce Hall.
Strengthening Families Through Hope and Help
For the past 11 years, the Voice Awards, a program of SAMHSA, has helped improve the nation's views and knowledge about mental health issues and substance use disorders.
It does this by recognizing exemplary television and film productions that raise public awareness, as well as community leaders whose work demonstrates that recovery from mental and/or substance use disorders is not only possible, but is taking place every day.
The Voice Awards help bring mental and substance use disorders out of the shadows, but there are still many stories that we can spotlight.
In 2016, the Voice Awards will highlight the theme “Strengthening Families through Hope and Help.” The Voice Awards event will recognize family members – along with their loved ones with mental illness and/or substance use disorders – who have embraced and promoted family support in all aspects of prevention, treatment and recovery. The event also will highlight television and film productions that portray the positive impact that family members can have on their loved one’s path to recovery.
