2019 Annual Awards & Mental Health Strategy Session 

36 Employers Recognized for Creating Cultures of Health

For the fifth year in a row, MBGH recognized employers that not only have created cultures of health but have sustained them over time! We are excited that our CEO Culture of Health initaitive, has consistentyly had 35-40 employers that meet the requirements for recognition every year. We also know that many of the other 25 employers that participate in the initiative have made significant strides in promoting and supporting the health of their employees. In total, the 64 organizations that participate in the CEO Culture of Health initiative employ over 70,000 just in Shelby County! Clearly all of these employers are helping to lift the health of our broader community and we celebrate their efforts.

World Cafe on Implementing a Comprehensive Mental Health Strategy 

In addition to recognizing employers for their commitment to creating and sustaining a culture of health, over 80 attendees participated in a World Cafe session dedicated to implementing a comprehensive worksite mental health strategy.

Karen Sones, Senior VP, HR Strategic Project Director, First Horizon National Corporation and Amanda Foley, Director of Business Development, LifeSpeak, kicked off this session with a discussion about how First Horizon's mental health strategy aligned with MBGH's framework.

Then attendees, in small groups, moved from table to table exploring each component of the framework: (1) Know the Impact; (2) Break the Silence; (3) Provide Access to Affordable, High-Value Care; and (4) Build a Culture of Well-being. At each table they shared what their orgnaization was already doing and identified challenges.

The noise level in the ballroom at Rhodes College and the notes made at each table, were clear indicators that everyone was fully engaged!

This session is part of MBGH's 2019 "Let's Talk About Mental Health" initaitive and will help MBGH know where to focus efforts for the remainder of the year.
