The APA Foundation has awarded LifeAct with the 2021 Award for Advancing Minority Health
LifeAct is honored to share that the American Psychiatric Association Foundation (APA Foundation) recently named LifeAct as a 2021 recipient of the Award for Advancing Minority Mental Health for their work in the Cleveland Metropolitan School District. For 20 years, LifeAct has been providing our lifesaving depression awareness and suicide prevention education to the CMSD at no charge, helping to shine a light on the importance of mental health.
Since being established in 2003, the Awards for Advancing Minority Mental Health has recognized community-based organizations that have undertaken innovative and supportive efforts to raise awareness of mental health in underserved populations including the need for early recognition, access to quality care and overcoming cultural barriers. The APA Foundation selected LifeAct due to its great impact in the Cleveland area.
LifeAct looks forward to officially accepting this award on July 19that the APA’s Annual Meeting.
