The Mental Health Association of the North Shore (MHANS) will honor outstanding community work in the youth leadership and outreach field at its 2010 Benefit, “Music to Move You,” to be held on July 23, said Elizabeth Brasher, MHANS president.

Peer Services Executive Director Kate Mahoney, LCSW, will receive the MHANS award and recognition as an individual who has done outstanding work to advance programs and develop innovative outreach programs to young people and their parents in our North Shore communities, Ms. Brasher said.

The MHANS award in the youth organizational category will be presented to the Warming House Youth Center of Wilmette’s Youth Leadership Board, composed of young people who help to develop programs, policy and outreach to area teens through the drop-in center for 8th- to 12th-grade teens.
