Public Mental Health Award – Deadline September 1, 2017

Crawford County Mental Health Center is seeking nominations for the first ever Public Mental Health Award for 2017. The Public Mental Health Award recognizes those in the Crawford County community who work towards the improvement of health, well-being, and/or mental health illness.  Nominees can be anyone in the Crawford County community who contribute positively to the community, by giving back, going the extra mile, or advocating for the betterment of a healthy community, in the mental health field especially, but not exclusively.

Nominations must have the name of the person being nominated, and if possible, an address, a phone number or email.  The person making the nomination should also include their name and contact information.  Please write a brief description of why you feel the nominee exemplifies the attributes of the Public Mental Health Award, including any relevant work experience, volunteer experience, public service, etc.

Nominations will be accepted until September 1, 2017.  Entries will be reviewed, judged, and winners will be recognized later this year at a Crawford County Commission Meeting and featured in our Community Calendars for the upcoming year.   Entries can be emailed to hspaur@cmhccc.org, dropped off, or mailed to Crawford County Mental Health Center, Attn: Heather Spaur, 911 E Centennial, Pittsburg, KS 66762, or faxed to 620-235-7148.  For additional information or if you have questions, contact Heather Spaur at 620-231-5130 or hspaur@cmhccc.org.
