Social Workers Receive National Honors for Dating Site for Adults with Mental Illness


Social workers Elizabeth Barrett of New Mexico and Michael Apgar of Colorado accepted a 2009 Reintegration Award from Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) for TrueAcceptance.com. The Reintegration Awards honor treatment teams, programs, and services for their outstanding contributions and achievements in the mental-health community.

Albuquerque, NM, October 22, 2009 --(PR.com)-- As a 1st place recipient in the category of Social Support, TrueAcceptance.com received a $5,000 grant which will help in continuing to provide dating and friendship opportunities to adults with mental illness in a stigma-free environment.

"We are truly excited to be recognized by such a prestigious award", says Co-Owner Elizabeth Barrett. "We can only hope that this recognition sheds some much needed light on the fact that relationships are a vital component to wellness and desired by all human beings."

Since 1997, Lilly Reintegration Awards have celebrated the achievements of those in the community who dedicate themselves to improving the lives of individuals with serious mental illnesses, and the achievements of those living with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder who battle tremendous odds to improve their own lives and the lives of their peers.

The Lilly Reintegration Awards recipients are determined by an independent panel of mental health professionals. Awardees are selected based on a demonstration of the individual’s or program’s success through quantifiable measures and evidence that individuals diagnosed with mental illness have directly benefited from the program or service.
