Each year, the Membership Committee of the Global Alliance recommends individuals or organizations for special recognition.  The program acknowledges significant contributions of individuals or organizations that align with and reflect the Alliance's core values.  Through their behavioral health research, practice, or advocacy, honorees help promote more humane social policy and represent the diverse disciplines (e.g., psychology, social work, law, public health, psychiatry, education, nursing, and other allied fields) that make up the Alliance's membership. Awards for 2017 were just announced. This year’s honorees include Libby Safrit and Teen Health Connection, Danielle Martin, María Pacheco, Yvonne Rafferty, and Deborah Gross.
