Join SAMHSA’s Voice Awards program to recognize consumer/peer leaders who use their stories of resilience to educate others about behavioral health and demonstrate that people with mental health and/or substance use disorders can and do recover and lead meaningful lives.
If you know of a consumer/peer leader who has made outstanding contributions in all of the following areas, please nominate that person for a 2014 Voice Award.
In 2014, the theme of the awards program is the behavioral health of young adults and their experiences in dealing with mental health and/or substance use disorders. Special consideration therefore will be given to young adult and other consumer/peer leaders who educate the public about the needs of young adults and empower them to seek services and supports that enable recovery.
ALL NOMINATIONS ARE DUE BY FRIDAY, APRIL 18.
To submit a nomination, please download and complete the consumer/peer leader nomination form, and send it back to the Voice Awards team using the contact information below.
Nominations are open to anyone. There is no limit to the number of nominations an individual can submit, and self-nominations are welcome.
The Voice Awards program defines “consumer/peer leader” broadly as a person who has received or is receiving services for a mental health and/or substance use disorder.
