NAMI Chicago Recognizes Dr. Colleen Cicchetti with "Public Education of the Year" Award

NAMI Chicago's annual awards dinner, Light the Darkness, is where people come together to illuminate the path to change. Conversations create understanding. Support dismantles stigma. And the collective spark ignites empowerment and recovery. Light the Darkness recognizes incredible advocates and this year's featured honoree is CCR Executive Director, Dr. Colleen Cicchetti.
