Since 1997, the Reintegration Awards, supported by Eli Lilly and Company, have celebrated the achievements of those in the community who dedicate themselves to improving the lives of individuals with serious mental illnesses, and the achievements of those living with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder who battle tremendous odds to improve their own lives and the lives of their peers. In 2013, the National Council for Community Behavioral Healthcare is proud to partner with Lilly to offer the Reintegration Awards.
Honorees of the Reintegration Awards receive cash prizes of $5,000 to $10,000, to be donated to a non-profit organization of the honoree’s choice.
