South Shore Mental Health recently presented Partner in Caring Awards to journalist Bree Sison, recently retired Patriot Ledger and Enterprise Editor Chazy Dowaliby, and corporate partner and champion event sponsor Eastern Bank. Given during the organization’s annual Building Hope, Changing Lives fundraiser at Lombardo’s in Randolph, the awards recognized the contributions of each to the Quincy-based non-profit.
“By shining a light on our programs and the clients we serve, Bree and Chazy have helped spark the conversation about mental illnesses as treatable physiological conditions,” said South Shore Mental Health President and CEO Harry Shulman. “With their support and the support of key partners like Eastern Bank, we are able to make a difference for a growing number of children, teens, and adults each year.”
The event, which featured guest speaker comedian and mental health advocate Amy Tee, celebrated the success of South Shore Mental Health’s clients and raised funds to support the agency’s programs for early intervention, mental health treatment, and recovery.
