The Mental Health Association of Nassau County has been named
as a finalist in the 4th Annual Long Island Imagine Awards!
The Long Island Imagine Awards was created to offer formal acknowledgement to some of Long Island’s most effective and innovative nonprofit organizations. Last year’s event attracted over 400 attendees from the nonprofit and business communities and an even larger crowd is expected this year.
Winners will be announced LIVE at the awards gala at the Crest Hollow Country Club on Tuesday, May 3, 2016. Nominated organizations, their constituents and the Long Island business community are expected to attend.
More than 135 entries were submitted for consideration in 5 categories, including Innovation, Leadership Excellence, Social Entrepreneurism, Rising Star, and Social Impact. The Mental Health Association of Nassau County is one of four finalists in the Innovation category.
The Mental Health Association of Nassau County became a finalist with Turquoise House, a unique alternative to psychiatric hospitalization that provides respite for Long Island residents in emotional distress. The first of its kind in the NY metropolitan area, Turquoise House allows guests to stay in a comfortable, home-like environment that promotes hope, health, and dignity, staffed entirely by “peers”, trained professionals who have experienced mental health challenges themselves.
