“We are deeply honored to receive this prestigious honor from the Anthem Awards.

Our hope is that the series also brings about positive change in our society by destigmatizing mental health and the topic of suicide,” said Brian McCourt, CEO at Able Channel. “We would also like to thank the behavioral health team at Cleveland Clinic for also being featured in the program. It was very important that we showed a clinical point of view in response to the stories that were being shared.”
