2017 Change Maker Awards

Nominate a Hero

The Child Mind Institute’s Change Maker Awards celebrate individuals and organizations making real change in the lives of children who struggle with mental health and learning disorders. We invite you to learn more about our 2015 and 2016 Change Makers — and to nominate one of your local heroes to be recognized as a 2017 Change Maker.

Local Heroes are individuals or organizations seeking to raise awareness and dispel stigma, helping children and families directly, or working to transform the way we understand and treat mental health  and learning disorders.

Nominations will be accepted now through February 26.

Voting begins March 13.
