At it's annual meeting, NMHA (rebranding to Mental Health America) www.nmha.org
awarded me the Clifford Beers Award.
I put the core of the application and a draft of my acceptance remarks online here http://www.peoplewho.org/beers/
The program reads
"Legendary mental health advocate Sylvia Caras, PhD, is this year's winner of
NMHA's most prestigious award for her work to improve the rights of
mental health consumers through outspoken advocacy and by sharing her
own experiences. Her pioneering efforts as the founder of People Who has
spread the meaning of "nothing about us without us" across the
the movement, and have empowered mental health consumers
nationally and internationally."
