The sixth annual Scattergood Innovation Award is up for grabs.
Administered by the Thomas Scattergood Behavioral Health Foundation, which recently co-released part two of its report on trauma-informed philanthropy, the award will be given to one of five programs that has proven itself to be “innovative” in the behavioral health field.
This year’s finalists were picked by the foundation from 88 submissions, and the winner will be chosen by a public vote. Last year, Hopeworks ‘N Camden’s Youth Healing Team (one of three local finalists) took home the prize.
Here are the 2018 nominees:
- Storiez: Narrative Healing with Inner-City Youth (Philadelphia) — Social worker Dr. Meagan Corrado’s art-based intervention for youth experiencing trauma
- Real Resilience (Philadelphia) — Social enterprise Ride and Rebuild LLC’s trauma-informed workshops for the women it drives to visit loved ones in Pennsylvania prisons
- Psychosis: Changing Perceptions through Art & Science (New York City) — Schizophrenia and Related Disorders Alliance of America’s (SARDAA) campaign to eliminate stigma against people with brain disorders
- MindRight (Newark and Washington D.C.) — Text message-based mental health coaching for teens who have experienced trauma
- Communities of HEALing (nationwide) — Project HEAL’s eating disorder recovery groups with peer mentorship chapters at universities around North America
