Austen Riggs Erikson Prize for Excellence in Mental Health Media

The Austen Riggs Erikson Prize for Excellence in Mental Health Media recognizes a select group of media professionals, including journalists, writers, and others who create exemplary work that contributes to a deeper understanding of and greater public awareness about mental health issues.

The prize carries an award of $3,000 and will be presented at an event where the honoree (or honorees) are invited to speak about their work. Attendance is welcome, but not required.

The prize is juried by a committee of Riggs clinicians and Trustees who will consider the work of candidates nominated by their peers as well as unsolicited nominations.
