All in the mind awards

All in the mindHas a person, professional or group has made a real difference to your life or recovery? If so, you can enter them for a BBC Award.

The BBC Radio 4 'All in the mind' programme is running an awards competition for a person, mental health professional or group that has made a real difference to the life of someone with mental health difficulties.

Nominations are invited from individuals (rather than organisations) for three award categories.

Individual award: An individual family member, friend, boss or colleague who has offered significant support.
Professional award: A mental health professional whose dedication, help and support made a really significant difference to you. This could be a psychologist, psychiatrist,therapist, doctor, social worker, nurse, volunteer or other professional.
Project award: A mental health project or group, which made a big difference to your recovery or the way you cope.

The judges for the awards are: Radio 1 DJ and TV presenter Scott Mills, clinical psychologist Guy Holmes, Marion Janner founder of Star Wards, MP Charles Walker and Claudia Hammond. They will be looking for examples of support which showed greater than expected levels of compassion, understanding or practical help.

Three finalists will be shortlisted from each category and then the overall winner for each category will be announced during a ceremony to be held at the Wellcome Collection in London on 19 June 2014.

The closing date for nominations is 31 January 2014.
