NI MATERNAL MENTAL HEALTH AWARDS 2019

*Nominations now closed*

The awards based on the notion that collaboration, making a contribution and making a difference is more significant than personal achievements. Consequently, a NI Maternal Mental Health Award is not a statement or measure of the honoree’s superior professional performance, abilities, credentials, qualifications, certifications, professional accomplishments or personal achievements (though all of these may be relevant). Ultimately, all individuals are being honored for their contributions. Consequently, making the short list or eventually receiving an award is a community-wide honor for being an exceptional contributor.
