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).
