"Connect 4 Mental Health® (C4MH) will issue four awards to U.S.-based community programs exhibiting innovative work in the four C4MH pillars — early intervention, creative use of technology, continuity of care, and service integration (one winner in each pillar). Winners will exemplify the mission of C4MH, implementing approaches that support individuals living with serious mental illness and their families, and that also may positively impact the communities in which they live.
Each of the 2014 Community Innovation Award winners will receive a $10,000 award and access to a one-on-one mentorship program featuring exemplary community-based programs with expertise in the four C4MH pillars. Winners will also be featured on the C4MH website and highlighted in future media announcements. Award submissions will be judged based on the program’s impact on the community, measurability/sustainability and effectiveness in building community partnerships, among other considerations."
