NAMI 2016 Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards

NAMI 2016 Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards

NAMI is now accepting nominations for the 2016 Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards. This awards program allows NAMI members, NAMI Affiliates in good standing and NAMI State Organizations throughout the country to honor publicly the extraordinary contributions that many psychiatrists make to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness.

To be considered for the 2016 Exemplary Psychiatrist Awards, an individual must have set an example for his or her professional colleagues.  NAMI would like to recognize those psychiatrists who have made substantial contributions to NAMI Affiliate or NAMI State Organization activities. These are the doctors who have “gone the extra mile” with NAMI members in ways such as:

  • Working alongside NAMI members for access to care, research, funding, or other NAMI priorities,
  • Ensuring that the NAMI perspective helps shape state and local services,
  • Providing comprehensive treatment to individuals living with mental illness including medical, rehabilitative and social needs,
  • Educating family members and/or individuals living with mental illness, and
  • Educating the public and fighting against prejudice and discrimination.

Award winners will receive a certificate and an award from NAMI.  Nominating NAMI Affiliates or NAMI State Organizations are encouraged to hold local award recognition events for winning psychiatrists.  NAMI will also recognize this year’s Exemplary Psychiatrists in the printed program for this year’s NAMI annual convention, which will be held July 6–9 in Denver, Colorado.

THE DEADLINE FOR SUBMITTING NOMINATIONS IS:  Monday, March 28, 2016.
