Each year, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare honors those who inspire us to fight against mental illness and addiction. Through its Awards of Excellence, the National Council spotlights the innovative and inspirational efforts of those individuals and organizations — staff, board leaders, volunteers, consumers, families, and community partners — who are changing the lives of children, adults, and families living with mental illnesses and addiction disorders.
Congratulations to Dr. Geogy Thomas, Medical Director for Dayspring Family Health Center in Jellico, TN for being awarded first prize in the Welcome Back Awards for Primary Care. The Welcome Back Awards were established in 1998 to fight the stigma associated with depression and to promote the understanding that depression is both common and treatable.
