Psychology Specialists announces the Grace Award:

Psychology Specialists is committed to providing quality mental health care to every patient in each community we proudly serve. Towards that end, we wish to recognize our fellow citizens in communities throughout Illinois and Arizona who, on their own, in ways big and small, contribute to enhancing the mental health of others.

Recently, we became aware of a 12-year-old girl who took it upon herself to act and assist classmates who were cutting and posting pleas for help on Snap Chat. On her own, she contacted each student and encouraged them, partnered with teachers and school counselors, and then wrote her own inspiring message to all the students struggling with sadness and the risks of self-harm. In doing so, this young woman helped change lives.

That student’s name is Ella Grace. And in addition to inspiring students, Ella inspired us at Psychology Specialists!

In honor of this brave and kind leadership , and with the belief that each of us, every day, can contribute to improving mental health for people in our community,  Psychology  Specialists  is  proud  to  announce  the GRACE AWARD.

Psychology Specialists welcomes nominations from everyone in the community to recognize those people who quietly, in their own way, do something to improve the mental health of their community. Share your story! Tell us about someone doing something kind or positive for another person. We will select a winner every three months and reward them with a $50 gift card and certificate of recognition. Plus, we will share their inspirational story on our website and social media outlets like Facebook and Twitter to encourage and lift all of us!
