The Elizabeth Manson Awards

The Elizabeth Manson Awards for Community Service in Children's Mental Health is named in honour of Elizabeth Manson. Throughout Liz's longstanding career in children's mental health she worked tirelessly to ensure communities, families, children and youth had equitable and timely access to the best mental health care available. It is through this dedication and service that we recognize the incredible contributions of non-physician clinicians who work tirelessly in their roles improving the lives and outcomes of children across the province of Ontario. Created in 2005 as a single award, we are pleased to announce that two awards are again being offered for 2016/17: The Elizabeth Manson Clinical Excellence Award and The Elizabeth Manson Program Leadership Award.
