Nominations for a new national award for innovation in mental health and addiction care are now open to people and organizations across the province.
The Award for Innovation in Mental Health and Addictions Care recognizes the contributions and excellence of a person or organization that is improving mental health and addiction care through innovation. The award recipient will receive $5,000; each province and territory will select a winner.
The award is open to all community-led, private sector and academic initiatives that contribute to the mental health and well-being of Nova Scotians. The winner is selected by a review committee chaired by a representative of the Mental Health Foundation of Nova Scotia.
The award recipient will be announced this summer. Recipients from each province and territory will also be recognized nationally and featured to promote innovation and collaboration across Canada.

The deadline for nominations is May 31.
