Emergence¹ is today celebrating! Kayla Kavanagh - a Knowledge & Understanding Framework (KUF)² trainer, singer songwriter and mental health activist - has won the Creative Hero Professional Award in the UK's first ever Mental Health Hero awards.
The awards were created by www.mentalhealthy.co.uk
last year to recognise the amazing achievements of some of the country's finest heroes, who selflessly and tirelessly look to make a real difference in the lives of those with mental health illness.
Award categories included 'Community Hero', 'Professional Hero', 'Business Hero' and 'Creative Hero' and amongst the winners are some incredible local, national and global organisations and individuals.
Kayla Kavanagh³ said: "I am thrilled about winning and must thank Emergence for nominating me - it was an honour even just to be nominated and when I found out I had been shortlisted for the award I couldn't believe it!
"Since receiving my diagnosis of Borderline Personality Disorder 4 in 2009 Emergence has been absolutely crucial in my development both as an artist and now as a Senior KUF trainer. I can't believe that I've actually won the award and am truly humbled to have been recognised by the judging team of such high profile mental health organisations.
