Stars Light Up the 2010 SAMHSA Voice Awards
The 2010 Voice Awards took place last Wednesday, and Psych Central’s own Dr. John Grohol was able to attend and do some red carpet schmoozing.
Each year, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) presents the Voice Awards (which are just one part of the Campaign for Mental Health Recovery) to recognize realistic portrayals of mental health issues in movies, television, and documentaries. Although nominees represented varying subjects, this year’s overall theme focused on mental health issues in the military.
Among this year’s winners were Army Wives, Grey’s Anatomy, Desperate Housewives, Precious, and No Kidding, Me Too!
In addition to the Special Career Recognition Award presented to former First Lady Rosalynn Carter and the Lifetime Achievement Award bestowed upon Moe Armstrong, the Voice Awards also honored everyday consumer advocates, giving Consumer Leadership Awards and Young Adult Leadership Awards to those less famous but just as valuable mental health advocacy rock stars.
