SAMHSA Honors The Soloist, 'Grey's Anatomy,' 'United States Of Tara,' and Mental Health Consumer Leaders at The Star-Studded 2009 Voice Awards
Date:10/15/2009

onored for their work to promote community acceptance and support to facilitate recovery for people with mental health issues.

Former U.S. Senator Gordon Smith of Oregon and Mrs. Sharon Smith -- whose 21-year-old son, Garrett, died by suicide -- received the SAMHSA Spotlight Award for heightening awareness about suicide prevention.

In addition, SAMHSA honored five-time Academy Award nominee Glenn Close with a Special Recognition Award for her work to educate the public about the effect of stigma on those with mental illness and their families. Grey New York, an advertising agency that developed a public service campaign in partnership with the Ad Council aimed at decreasing negative attitudes about mental illness and encouraging young adults to support friends who are living with mental health issues, also received a SAMHSA Special Recognition Award for its pro-bono work.

The GlassBook Project -- an innovative art project program of Witness Justice and Rutgers University-Newark, Department of Arts, Culture and Media to increase social inclusion of individuals with mental illness -- was showcased at this year's event. As a result of the project, students have learned from mental health consumers about the nature and impact of trauma and created 19 glass books to illustrate the consumers' experiences. Witness Justice is a national nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide support and advocacy for victims of violence and trauma.

The Voice Awards are part of the Campaign for Mental Health Recovery, a multi-year public service advertising program of SAMHSA and the Ad Council to promote understanding and support for young adults and others with mental illnesses.

The 2009 Voice Awards is supported by the following organizations: Ad Council; Alliance Healthcare Foundation; American Counseling Association; American Psychiatric Foundation; American Psychological Association; Mental Health Media Partnership; Natio
