APA presented its annual Psychiatric Services Achievement Awards at its 2004 Institute on Psychiatric Services to innovative programs that deliver services to mentally ill or disabled people, that have overcome obstacles, and that can serve as models for other programs. This annual competition, begun in 1949, is supported by a grant from Pfizer Inc.

The 2004 awards, selected from a field of 82 applicants, were presented by Cheryl S. Al-Mateen, M.D., chair of the Psychiatric Services Achievement Awards Committee. All winning programs participated in a special workshop at the institute, which was held in October in Atlanta.FIG1
