PADUCAH, KY – Since 1978, Four Rivers Behavioral Health has presented the Lovey Raburn Award to an individual who has demonstrated outstanding dedication and service in the areas of Mental Health, Developmental or Intellectual Disabilities or Substance Abuse. This year, the organization departed from tradition and instead of honoring an individual, a company was named as the recipient.
The Raburn Award was presented to KentuckyCare earlier this month. The award is named in memory of Lovey Raburn, a Carlisle County resident who served as a member of Four Rivers Behavioral Health’s Board of Directors for many years.
KentuckyCare has partnered with Four Rivers Behavioral Health to ensure patients seen at KentuckyCare that have mental health disorders along with physical health problems are properly cared for with a “mind and body” treatment philosophy. This partnership, along with KentuckyCare’s overall commitment to mental health has earned the organization the Raburn Award.
Previous award winners are listed on a plaque displayed in the Carlisle County Courthouse.
Currently celebrating its fiftieth year, Four Rivers Behavioral Health is a private, not-for-profit agency that provides comprehensive mental health, substance abuse and developmental/intellectual disability services to clients in Ballard, Calloway, Carlisle, Fulton, Graves, Hickman, Livingston, Marshall, and McCracken counties.
