2019 NIHB Hope and Healing Award Nomination
In an effort to honor individuals, Tribes, organizations, and programs that have enriched and improved American Indian and Alaska Native behavioral health, the National Indian Health Board (NIHB) invites nominations for the Native Behavioral Health Award. NIHB created this award to recognize excellence, achievement, and innovations that are above and beyond the call of service. NIHB recognizes that behavioral health is important to Native health and wellness, and that Tribes have led the way in creating and implementing behavioral health programming and services that align not only with contemporary needs, but with cultural beliefs as well. This award will highlight the work and vision of an individual, organization, Tribe, or program that has worked to improve behavioral health outcomes, implement new programming, address long standing health disparities, and/or increase the visibility of behavioral health concerns.

NIHB will present the awards at the 2019 American Indian and Alaska Native National Behavioral Health Conference in Albuquerque, NM during a plenary session. All nominations should be received by 11:59 p.m. ET on Thursday, February 28, 2019. (Please note that this is an extension from the original deadline of Friday, February 15.) The award recipients will be notified within three weeks upon close of the nominations.

There will be one recipient in each category:
• Tribe
• Program
• Individual

If you have any questions, please contact Angelica at NIHB via email at aaljanabi@nihb.org or by phone at (202) 507-4074. For other questions about the conference, please email TPHS@nihb.org or by phone at (202) 507-4070.
