The County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Board will host the 10th Annual Behavioral Health Community Heroes Awards on Wednesday, May 5, 2021, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm virtually via Zoom. Former State Senator Jim Beall will be the keynote speaker.
Every year, the County of Santa Clara Behavioral Health Board hosts the Behavioral Health Community Heroes Awards to recognize those individuals and organizations within the county who have demonstrated exemplary service to county residents suffering the effects of mental illness. In the face of a global pandemic, Heroes have continued their mission to improve the lives of those they serve. Community Heroes are professional service providers, members of the faith-based community, law enforcement, as well as community members. Due to COVID-19, the 2020 Hero Awards were cancelled. As a result, the award recipients were unable to be publicly recognized. This year, the 2020 award recipients, as well as the 2021 Heroes will be honored.
