Mental Health America of Texas commemorated the beginning of Mental Health Month with the 54th Annual Honoring Dinner: An Evening of Hope to recognize the significant contributions of Representative Four Price (R-Amarillo) and Ms. Sharon Butterworth of El Paso, to mental health in Texas.  MHA Texas’ highest honor, the Mary Elizabeth Holdsworth Butt Award for Mental Health, was presented to Representative Price in recognition of his leadership in improving the lives of Texans affected by mental illness. Sharon Butterworth was recognized for her dedication and commitment to improving the mental health of El Pasoans with the Texas Impact Award.  Nearly 300 guests attended the event, on Friday, May 5, 2017, at the Hyatt Regency Austin to celebrate the honorees. We are grateful to our sponsors and all who attended for making the evening special.
