Sean Russell, West Midlands Combined Authority (WMCA) director of implementation for mental health,wellbeing and radical prevention, said the awards were designed to recognise those who have made a positive difference and to look at the wider work by the Thrive West Midlands programme.
More than 120 nominations were received from across the WMCA region - anyone can suggest an individual or organisation they feel has had a positive impact on their own or someone else’s mental wellbeing.
The awards will be an opportunity to learn more about work in the region, including progress against the Thrive West Midlands Action Plan.
