Portland, OR. – 1/15/2015

  Keep Oregon Well – Mental Health Heroes Awards 2015

Mental Health Awareness Month happens each year in May.  This year, to mark the occasion, Trillium is launching our inaugural 31 day multi-media celebration of the people, nonprofits, community groups and business leaders who have helped pave the way for Mental and Behavioral healthcare to thrive in Oregon and the Pacific NW.

We will honor one Mental Health Hero for every day in May – 31 in all – announcing a new hero each day on our website and social media.  On Friday, May 1st we will unveil all of the hero prints at the opening of the “Keep Oregon Well” art exhibit at Trillium’s Historic Old School Children’s Farm Home (4455 NE Highway 20, Corvallis, OR 97330) from 5pm-8pm.  Many of the honorees will be in attendance.  The show will be featured on the walls of the Farm Home during May and June.

This process is truly community-driven, with open nominations taking place annually from February 1st-28th .  We are calling upon the broader community to tell us about who have been the heroes in your lives, in your organizations, and in our state.  For this project, “Heroes” is defined as any person or group which has helped to reduce stigma, advance the mental and behavioral healthcare field, and make Oregon and the Pacific NW a safer, more supportive place to live through their service, sacrifice, risk, inspiration, and example.

In the end, our goal is to showcase our rich history, highlight the diversity of experience it has taken to get us from there to here, and honor those who have bravely paved the way for mental and behavioral healthcare and awareness in our state.  From teachers to politicians, therapists to clients, children to seniors, we find heroism everywhere we look.  This is our chance to tell their stories and celebrate people who might otherwise be overlooked.

In this first year, a selection committee made up of community members and industry leaders will work to narrow down the nominees in March, with the goal of having previous honorees join us for the selection process in following years.
