nominate candidate


Nominations 2017 are now open. You can nominate until April the 16th, 2017 any person, organization or project that matches the stipulated selection criteria.

The organization evaluates all submitted nominations in accordance with the selection criteria and elaborates a first selection of about 20 candidates. The number of times an organization has been nominated, has no influence on the selection.  The selected organization will receive a mail requesting more extensive information about their project.

An international and heterogeneous selection committee of  prominent jurors within the social, cultural and medical field starts the evaluation of the 20 selected nominations. After deliberation, the committee selects the person, organization or project that has made the most exceptional contribution to breaking the chains of stigma, by June 2017.

Around October 10, World Mental Health Day, the organization presents the Dr. Guislain Award 2017 in a ceremony in Belgium. The laureate receives the award from the jury, Brother Dr. René Stockman (General Director Museum Dr. Guislain) and Dr. Husseini Manji (Global Therapeutic Area Head, Neuroscience, Janssen Research & Development, LLC).
