The Chicago School of Professional Psychology will present its 2nd annual Mental Health Heroes Awards Luncheon and fundraiser on Wednesday, May 9, 2018, at The Olympic Collection in West Los Angeles, 11301 West Olympic Boulevard, to recognize those who have improved treatment, raised public awareness, and reduced the stigma of mental illness, substance use disorder and suicide.
