The Pardes Humanitarian Prize in Mental Health

Named in honor of Herbert Pardes M.D., this international prize recognizes a physician, scientist or public citizen whose extraordinary contribution has made a profound and lasting impact by improving the lives of people living with mental illness and advancing the understanding of mental health.

First introduced at the 2014 National Awards Dinner in October, the Prize was intended both to honor the humanitarian achievements of Dr. Herbert Pardes and to establish recognition of similar achievements by others in the years ahead. This award is designed to recognize individuals who comprehensively care, teach, investigate, work and advocate for improving the mental health of the society while simultaneously reducing the pain that psychiatric illness causes. Characteristics of the recipient include a focus on humanitarianism as well as significant contributions to education, prevention, research, administration, clinical care, mentoring and advocacy for policies in support of mental health. Last year's Prizewinners were Drs. Beatrix and David Hamburg, M.D. and Former First Lady Rosalynn Carter.
