Teachers invited to apply for mental health award

By
March 30, 2011 |

As part of its 2011 sunflower art competition, NAMI-Yolo, a chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, plans to award a $400 prize to one educator who best demonstrates how he or she uses the contest to educate students about mental health.

The William Albrecht Mental Health Education Award honors Albrecht, a young man who was inspired by a few exceptional teachers to excel in music, art and writing before his life was cut short by bipolar disorder. NAMI-Yolo established this prize in 2009 to honor his memory and to recognize insightful educators who foster a culture of inclusion and tolerance, allowing all students to blossom in their classrooms, helping reduce the myths and prejudices that surround mental illness.

To qualify, applicants must be teachers working with any age group of students in a school or non-school setting and must use the art project as a method to educate the students about mental health.

The artwork must meet all the guidelines of the competition, including using a sunflower theme. The entry deadline is May 27. For details and application forms, visit http://www.namisunflowers.org or call (530) 756-8181 and leave a message.

Applications are also available at the Davis Art Center, 1919 F St in Davis.

For general information about mental health resources, visit http://www.namiyolo.org.
