Change Maker Awards

Our annual Change Maker Awards celebrate individuals and organizations making real change in the mental health care system - and in the lives of children and adolescents who struggle with mental health and learning disorders.

Every spring, as part of our annual Speak Up for Kids campaign, the Child Mind Institute issues a call for nominations – inviting the general public to nominate people and organizations for Change Maker Awards. Our selection committee winnows the field to a group of finalists in each category then we open voting to the public. This year, the Local Hero award and Local Hero Honorable Mentions will be selected by popular vote. The winner will join the others being honored – including a Champion, a Visionary and a Community Builder.
