The Janey Antoniou Awards

 

The Janey Antoniou Awards recognise campaigners with lived experience who have made a difference to the lives of people living with mental illness through:

  • Raising awareness of the realities of living with mental illness
  • Combating stigma associated with mental illnesses
  • Campaigning for better care for people affected by mental illness, both in and outside healthcare

Janey Antoniou was a dear friend of Rethink Mental Illness and an inspirational colleague. During her 15 year career in mental health she worked tirelessly to improve the care of people living with mental health problems. Throughout all her achievements she lived with debilitating depression, anxiety and schizophrenia. Each year we present the Janey Antoniou Award in recognition of an individual who has worked tirelessly to improve the lives of people affected by mental illness and continue the legacy of Janey's work. Thanks to a generous gift from Janey's family, the winner of this award receives £1,000. Two finalists receive £100 each.
