Submission Deadline is August 22, 2024

The Awards Selection Committee is now accepting nominations for outstanding individuals or organizations in Utah’s behavioral health communities. Awards, in each category, will only be presented for exemplary service and accomplishments, not just as an annual recognition.

BACKGROUND

These awards give individuals or groups in or connected to the Utah behavioral health systems (mental health and addictions) an opportunity to honor those who have made exemplary contributions which have improved understanding and/or enhanced awareness or treatment of substance use disorders. None of the awards are given out each year as a routine occurrence but rather in the years wherein individuals are recognized for high achievement.
To be considered for the 2024 awards, an individual, program, organization or coalition must have set an example for his or her colleagues and/or made significant contributions in the provision of services in the areas of prevention, recovery and wellness, or treatment.
Individuals in any state, local authority program, private organization, profit or not-for-profit entity may submit nominations. The Awards Selection Committee will select the winners, and recipients will be notified in September. Awards will be presented at a conference luncheon.
