Gala and Awards Event

We were pleased to host our third annual gala on December 16, 2016 at Morgan Manufacturing.  The theme of our gala was "Behavioral Health: The Right Care at the Right Time for the Whole Person." 

Proceeds from this year's gala were given to support CCHHS's behavioral health programs and services, which provides services for thousands of people every year.

The Ruth M. Rothstein Award for Excellence was  given to The Honorable Patrick J. Kennedy, who is a former member of the U.S. House of Representatives and the nation’s leading political voice on mental illness, addiction and other brain diseases; he also is the co-author of “A Common Struggle,” which outlines a bold plan for the future of mental health in America.

Special thanks to the Gala's honorary chair Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle.

Stay tuned for information on our upcoming events in 2017 and 2018.
