Inaugural awards to honor medical and community excellence

April 2, 2018 by  

The 1st Momentum Mental Health Awards luncheon is taking place next month in Edmonton, hosted by Momentum Walk-In Counselling.

The event will most likely start off with a short reception where guests and speakers will be able to talk to each other. It will be followed by a sit-down luncheon, a keynote speaker, and the awards ceremony.

There are both individual and organizational awards to be handed out at the luncheon; finalists from Edmonton and the surrounding area were nominated by their peers until April 1. The individual awards include Young Leader, Researcher/Clinician, New Media and Elected Official, while the community awards include Workplace Mental Health and Community Organization.

Sponsorships are available for $1,000, $2,000 and $5,000; sponsors will receive advertisements in the event programs and will be mentioned on all print advertising materials.

As its name suggests, Momentum Walk-In Counselling accepts patients who walk in off the street. It provides single therapy sessions and several drop-in groups. The program that everyone will receive at the door will likely be provided by an Edmonton brochure printing firm.

The Momentum Mental Health Awards luncheon will be held at the Hyatt Hotel on May 10 from 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM. Tickets are $125. Contact Jamie Bay at 587-783-8561 for more information about this event or Momentum Walk-In Counselling.
