We are honored and delighted to announce our recent wins at the prestigious Communicator Awards. Four MI Healthy Mind episodes were awarded; Restoring Hope: The Aftermath of Suicide, Positive Thinking: Harnessing the Power to Heal, Self-Expression and the Art of Healing: Art Therapy, and Wounded Healers: Champions for Change.
“We at MI Healthy Mind are all thrilled and extremely gratified by this honor,” said the show’s executive producer, Millie Elston, upon receiving the awards. “Being able to produce a program that has made such a difference and helped so many people is reward enough, but being recognized for our work by other professionals in the communications industry is a tremendous compliment and validated the hard work and creativity of our team.”
Relativity Communications, a full-service marketing and advertising firm best known for producing MI Healthy Mind, has also been honored by the mental health industry for its work on the show. The National Alliance of Mental Illness, NAMI, had also previously recognized the company with a coveted NAMI Michigan Honors -Media of the Year Award for programming.
“Every single week, MI Healthy Mind tackles a different, difficult subject related to mental wellness. The courage, insight, and sensitivity shown in the production of these weekly shows have had a huge, positive impact in our communities. As they say on the show, “Let’s talk about it,” explained Kevin Fischer, Executive Director of NAMI Michigan, This award was just a small token of the gratitude we feel for the important work they are doing at Relativity.”
Thank you to our team, our guests, those from the Communicator Awards, and, especially, to you, our viewers and supporters. We appreciate all you do to help stop the stigma surrounding mental health.
