Dell & Kraft Awards

The Dell Award

The United Church of Christ Disabilities Ministries (UCCDM) for sometime in conjunction with the UCC Mental Illness Network offered The Bob Dell Award honoring a local UCC church or person who has done much to eliminate stigma, build a ministry, or advocate for insurance parity or legal protection for persons with serious mental illnesses. In 2013 the UCC Mental Illness Network became the UCC Mental Health Network (UCCMHN) and an entity separate from UCCDM. UCCDM believes that UCCMHN will continue to offer the Bob Dell Award.
