2022 Awards of Excellence Celebration

On the heels of a uniquely challenging year, we approached 2021 with a renewed commitment to help communities in need, connect people to high-quality care and move our field forward.

Across the country, health care professionals did the same. They overcame obstacles with innovations, raised the volume on important issues and helped their communities thrive.

During our annual National Council Awards of Excellence program, we will honor those individuals who paved the way for progress this year. Our award categories include:


  • Lifetime Achievement Award: This award is in recognition of an individual whose efforts, far-reaching impact and commitment to improving the lives of vulnerable Americans living with mental health and substance use challenges is unmatched.
  • Peer Specialist of the Year Award: Great things happen when passion meets purpose. This award recognizes an individual with lived experience who works in a health care organization and uses their strengths to help peers on their road to recovery.

Are you improving service delivery in your community? Do you know someone who is enhancing access to care through their leadership? Recognize them or share your own impact!

Submit a nomination for one of these awards by Friday, January 28, at 11:59 p.m. PT! Have questions about the National Council Awards of Excellence? Contact us!
