Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards
Open Minds are proud to be the host for the Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards
What are the Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards?
The Queensland Mental Health Week Achievement Awards are an important part of Queensland Mental Health Week to recognise and celebrate the achievements of individuals, groups and organisations working to reduce stigma and empower those living with mental illness. Open Minds has proudly hosted the Awards since 1996. There are 11 award categories, and all winners receive an engraved trophy and framed certificate. The overall winner receives the Earle Duus overarching award, which includes a $4000 cash prize to continue their work in the mental health sector.
When are the Awards presented?
How can I submit a nomination?
The 2023 Awards will be presented at a ceremony at Victoria Park in Brisbane on Friday 13th October 2023, during Queensland Mental Health Week and close to World Mental Health Day.
