Social Responsibility Award

The Group Foundation for Advancing Mental Health Social Responsibility Award, inaugurated in 2010, is presented annually at AGPA Connect to an AGPA member, group of members, an Affiliate Society or an affiliated organization of mental health professionals who has provided an exceptional service that ultimately benefits the public-at-large (e.g. training professionals who provide group interventions, direct services to a community in need, extensive pro bono work, etc.). Anyone can submit a nominee or an applicant can be self-nominated.  The application must include the nominee(s) name, address, curriculum vita (of all individuals being nominated, if more than one) and a detailed reason for the award nomination.  Additional letters of recommendation are encouraged to accompany the award nomination.  Submissions are due to the Group Foundation office by October 1st of each year.
