Actress KaDee Strickland and her husband actor Jason Behr attended the 15th Annual PRISM Awards on April 28, 2011 in Beverly Hills. The PRISM awards recognize the accurate portrayal in movies and TV shows on substance abuse, addiction or mental health issues.
KaDee Strickland was honored for her performance in a Drama Series Multi-Episode Storyline. Her character Dr. Charlotte King was brutally attacked and raped on ABC’s “Private Practice” and the response to this storyline has been overwhelming. The storyline lead her to work with the organization RAINN, as well.

During the panel, Rhimes talked about how hard it was to watch the episode in which Charlotte was raped, but hoped it could help survivors and non-survivors to better understand the subject matter. […] (via zap2it.com)
