If you’re looking for a “who’s who” of innovators in behavioral health, your first stop might be the nominees for Scattergood Foundation’s fifth-annual Innovation Awards.

The foundation has nominated five programs, largely from Greater Philadelphia (with two organizations from New England), but they’re depending on the public to decide who gets the award — and the $25,000 that accompanies it.

Here’s the slate of nominees:

  • Clifford Beers Clinic, Whole-Family Approach to Child Behavioral Health Care — Based in New Haven, Conn., this program recently opened a “hub” for mothers in a local supermarket where they provide stress management and workforce development services.
  • Hopeworks ‘N Camden, Youth Healing Team — The program out of the Camden nonprofit is composed of and led by youth themselves. Recently, the team consulted corporate staff at Subaru how to implement trauma-aware training programs.
  • Dartmouth Centers for Health and Aging, PeerTECH: Peer and Technology-supported Self-management Intervention — Based in New Hampshire, PeerTECH is a peer-based model for self-managed care, comprised of a smartphone app, in-person sessions and a peer care management dashboard.
  • Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, Positive Parenting Program to Improve Problem Behaviors in Preschool-Age Children (PriCARE) — This six-week group parenting program is designed to “improve child behavior, strengthen parent-child relationships, and decrease stress” with low-income, disadvantaged populations in mind.
  • StreetChange — A mobile crowdfunding app developed by Penn researchers Andrew Siegel and Dan Treglia that allows users to donate directly to people experiencing homelessness.

Voting ends April 4.
