We did it! On Friday, February 22, 2019 the Broward Mental Health Summit was awarded 2-1-1 Broward’s “non-profit organization of the year for collaboration.” This prestigious award recognizes collaboration as one of the most important ways to achieve lasting and positive changes in our community. It celebrates two or more organizations that have partnered to address and improve the community at large.
For the incredible team led by Chairman of the Sheriffs Foundation of Broward County and Chairman of the Broward Mental Health Summit, Juan Arias, the Award culminates the incredible success of the inaugural Broward Mental Health Summit which took place on Septemeber 12, 2018. More than two dozen community partners, healthcare providers, business organizations, civic leaders and dedicated professionals joined together to promote mental health for all of the citizens of Broward County and beyond. The Summit drew over 400 people, many for different walks of life concerned about the state of mental health in our community.
“We were just thrilled to receive this prestigious Award for the recognition of all the hard work put in by our amazing team”, said Mr. Arias, aka “Captain JC”, “and we can’t wait to get started on planning for the 2019 Summit!”
“Incredible! Just incredible and so blessed to be a part of this special group. We are like the SEAL Team 6 of behavioral healthcare advocates”, according to David Lam of Spark of Hope, and co-Chair of the Broward Mental Health Summit. “Wait until you see what we have in store for this year’s summit. It promises to be even bigger and better than last year’s, beginning with our incredible Keynote Speaker, Frank Biden.”
The 2019 Broward Mental Health Summit will once again take place at the Charles F. Dodge City Center in Pembroke Pines on September 12, 2019. For inquiries and sponsorship opportunities, please visit www.browardmentalhealthsummit.org or call Spark of Hope at (954) 590 -8363
