Seven Counties Services/Bellewood & Brooklawn (SCS/B&B), based in Louisville, Ky., celebrated its first annual awards dinner Sept. 20. The theme of the evening centered around family, and this was in evidence throughout the evening. The dinner celebrated valued employees and board members who have dedicated many years to service. It also introduced the recipients of two key awards: The Equity Award and The Bruce W. Furguson — Healer of Hearts & Minds Award.

Equity Award

Presented by the SCS/B&B Racial Equity Diversity Initiatives (REDI) Group, the Equity Award is awarded to honor a community partner who has been identified as a leader in equity work. This individual or organization shows exemplary leadership in the areas of racial justice in practice, confronting systematic oppression, and creating inclusive avenues for social change.

This year, the award was presented to Damon Cobble and the Minority Mental Health Project (MMHP) for their partnership with Seven Counties Services/Bellewood & Brooklawn (SCS/B&B) in recent years. This past July, they were an integral part of the SCS/B&B Winners for Wellness Mental Health Summit.
