Online PR News – 16-April-2012 – London – Mental Health Hero Award Winners Announced
Mental health organisation www.mentalhealthy.co.uk has recognised the fantastic achievements of some of the country’s finest heroes, who selflessly and tirelessly look to improve the lives of others.
Created by Mental Healthy founder Charlotte Fantelli, the Mental Health Hero awards celebrate the incredible achievements of people making a real difference in the lives of those with mental illness.
Categories include ‘Community Hero’, ‘Professional Hero’, ‘Business Hero’ and ‘Creative Hero’ and amongst the winners are some incredible local, national and even global organisations and individuals.
As well as winners, Charlotte Fantelli and the other judges felt the need to compile a list of “highly commended” individuals and organisations to further recognise the amazing work that’s being done in the UK and around the globe.
Judges of the awards include some big names in the world of mental health including Dr Andrew McCulloch, Chief Executive of the Mental Health Foundation, Marjorie Wallace, CBE, founder and chief executive of SANE and Kath Lovell founder of Emergence.
The business awards, which recognise the achievements of businesses who champion mental health, are judged by Andy Bell, Deputy CEO of The Centre for Mental Health and Mental Healthy’s very own co-founder and entrepreneur of the year Simon Dolan.
Charlotte Fantelli said “The humbling work individuals and organisations are doing across the globe takes my breath away. Every single Mental Healthy Hero Award winner has done something extraordinary in an area that is not glitzy or glamorous and that takes great strength and human kindness, not only the winners but every candidate is a hero that deserves recognition.”
