What are the Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards?
The Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations working tirelessly to reduce stigma and support and empower those living with mental illness. There are 11 award categories, and winners receive an engraved trophy and framed certificate. The overall winner receives the Earle Duus overarching award, which includes a $4,000 prize to continue their great work in the mental health sector.
When are the Awards presented?
The 2022 Awards will be presented at a ceremony in Brisbane on Friday 14th October 2022 - during Queensland Mental Health Week and close to World Mental Health Day.
Can I nominate?
Anyone who works to improve mental health can nominate for an award. Just being an award finalist gives individuals and organisations fantastic PR and media coverage. We usually receive nominations from:
- People nominating themselves or colleagues
- Not-for-profit organisations
The best way to submit a nomination is to nominate yourself, because no-one knows your work and achievements better than you!
Nominations are NOW OPEN and can be submitted easily online, with entrants able to save progress as they go. The deadline for submitting an award is midnight Sunday 15 August 2022.
