The recipients will receive their awards at the evening ceremony on Tuesday, May 2, 2023. The event includes a VIP Reception and an online and silent auction to raise funds for MHA – Greater Dallas’s mission to improve mental health through advocacy, community education, and resources for children, adolescents, and adults. 


For this year’s Mental Health Month, we are delighted to hold our 24th Annual PRISM Award Ceremony honoring local professionals who embody exemplary service in meeting the local needs of individuals with mental illness and represent best practices aligned with this year’s Mental Health Month theme, Look Around and Look Within!  From your neighborhood to genetics, they understand the many factors that come into play regarding mental health conditions. Where a person is born, lives, learns, works, plays, and gathers, as well as their economic stability and social connections, are part of the “social determinants of health” (SDOH). The more these factors work in your favor, the more likely you will have better mental well-being. However, when it seems like the world is working against you, your mental health can suffer. MHA-Greater Dallas encourages everyone to consider how the world around them affects their mental health.
