Annual Candlelight Vigil

On Friday October 6th, NAMI PA Scranton & Northeast Region will hold the Annual Candlelight Vigil on the Spruce Street side of the Lackawanna County Courthouse in observance of National Mental Illness Awareness Week. The event will begin at 6:30 PM and end at sundown with the lighting of the candles.

Mental Illness Awareness Week is a national effort intended to educate communities about mental illness and to end stigma by celebrating the great strides that have been made in diagnosing and treating mental illness.

NAMI Scranton takes this opportunity to honor individuals and organizations with the Annual Candlelight Award and the Crisis Intervention Team Leadership Award.

Candlelight Award

The Candlelight Award is a distinguished honor that the NAMI PA Scranton Area Chapter awards to an individual or an organization in recognition of efforts made toward improving the lives of people with mental illness in Northeast PA.

Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Leadership Award

The NAMI PA Scranton Crisis Intervention Team (CIT) Leadership Award will be given to the CIT member(s) who has provided extraordinary service in response to mental health crisis calls and/or provided exemplary leadership toward the development and expansion of CIT in Lackawanna County.

Both awards highlight efforts that exemplify excellence in the community and serve as a role model to the people of Northeast PA as we all battle the stigma and discrimination that continues to surround mental illness. These awards celebrate exceptional work, commitment, advocacy, and creativity of those who are making a difference in the lives of people living with mental illness.

Light refreshments will be served and this event is free and open to the public. For more information please call the NAMI Scranton & Northeast Region office at 570-342-1047.
