Mental Health & Wellbeing Summits 2017

Spring is a time of year that inspires change and innovation. We’ve had the chance to reflect on the first quarter of the year and are looking forward to continuing to make meaningful change. It’s the perfect time to take stock of what your organization is doing well and areas that could use improvement, and one ideal way to do that is to convene with others to share ideas and strategies.

This is the motivation behind our upcoming Summits in mental health and wellbeing. By bringing together a diverse group of employers and other stakeholders, along with national thought leaders, we are going to create a space where innovative strategies will be shared, new relationships forged, and opportunities discovered.

On Day 1, our Mental Health Summit, we’ll hear from speakers at the leading edge of mental health research, care, and policy together leading employers, vendors and coalitions in the space. By promoting dialogue across sectors, we can better address some of the most challenging issues we face. For example, our panel on “Moving Beyond Parity to Improve Access and Value,” we bring together leading voices from sectors touching all sides of this issue, including CEO of advocacy group NAMI, Mary Giliberti, the Chief Psychiatric Officer for Aetna, Hyong Un, the Chief Policy Officer from the American Psychiatric Association and the Senior Medical Director for Behavioral Health from TeleDoc - and that is just one of our panels!!

During our Wellbeing Summit the following day, leaders in this emerging field will share evidence-based practices and strategies for promoting a more holistic view of health and wellbeing in the workplace and beyond. We’ll learn more about the science behind approaching health from a holistic perspective, and exactly how employers, communities, and health systems are implementing end to end strategies related to wellbeing. Representatives from companies like Google, Zappos, and PwC will share why they’ve made workplace wellbeing a priority, and the types of results that are possible when employees and employers are committed to this goal.

Our mission at the National Alliance is to drive innovation, health and value for companies and communities across the country and these Summits will lay the foundation for how we can improve the wellbeing of individuals and their families through and to the benefit of employers, communities and health systems. By engaging stakeholders from every corner, sharing knowledge and skills, and working together to drive innovation, health, and value, our summits will highlight where these interests are aligned, today's bright spots of performance while providing a roadmap for future collaborations to create positive change.

There are a few spots left so please register here to join us for the conversations at this important conference.
