The Jimmie Davis Awards Dinner for NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) was Oct. 10 at the Oklahoma Jazz Hall of Fame. Approximately 175 guests attended the program named for Davis, the late advocate of rights for people with mental illness.

Keynote speaker Dr. Gerard Clancy, president of the University of Tulsa, spoke about Tulsa’s 10-Year Mental Health Plan. Funds raised at the event provide free education, support groups and advocacy for families and individuals living with mental illness.
