Nominations need to be made by August 31 through the dedicated Prize website: http://australianmentalhealthprize.org.au/
To enter nominees must provide a CV and 200 words outlining the work being undertaken and how it is making an impact. Nomination forms can be obtained from: http://australianmentalhealthprize.org.au/nominate
The Advisory Group will select, champion and enhance the prestige of the Prize through networks and the larger community. Entries close 31 August 2016; six finalists will be chosen with the winner being announced on November 28.
