2017 Mary Neville Award - Call for Nominations

Since 1988, Peel Children’s Centre has asked child and youth mental health professionals working within the Peel community to help honour their peers who best embody prevention and early intervention treatment approaches in their work.

The Mary Neville Award was created in honour of the late Mary Neville — a former Prevention Coordinator for Peel Children’s Centre. Throughout her career, Mary made valuable contributions to the area of children’s mental health. Mary’s work particularly focused on the positive outcomes that resulted when employing prevention and early intervention treatment methods.

In the past, award recipients have been recognized for a variety of significant contributions within the community, such as:

  • developing a relapse prevention program for clients demonstrating sexually inappropriate behaviours;
  • working with children/youth experiencing severe social, emotional and behavioural difficulties to ensure their placement in a mainstream educational setting;
  • creating an integrated preschool model for children with special needs;
  • developing a home visitation program for children with hearing impairments; and
  • launching a youth substance abuse program.

The Mary Neville Award provides an opportunity to thank an individual within our community whose work contributes to an important area of child and youth mental health and well-being. If you or your staff know of an individual whose significant contributions in the areas of prevention and early intervention deserve recognition, please take a few moments to submit a nomination.

Nominations are due by Friday, September 15, 2017. Please download and complete the nomination form below and email it to Lisa Bruce, Executive Coordinator, at lbruce@peelcc.org For further information, please call Lisa at 905-795-3503.

The award presentation will take place in October 2017. Details regarding the award presentation date, time, and location will be released in September.

Thank you in advance for your participation.
