In order to encourage innovative mental health interventions and educate employers about them, NAMI-NYC Metro and the Northeast Business Group on Health (NEBGH) co-sponsor a workplace mental health summit that brings together HR, EAP and benefit executives from Fortune 100 companies to discuss current obstacles and share best practices. The aim of the summit is to bring together thought leaders to identify barriers to successful mental health management in the workplace across a range of business sectors and to share best practices and successful community-based initiatives in New York City, the U.S., and globally.
As companies recognize that mental health is part of overall health and wellness, they will need to take the initiative to promote an environment where early intervention is encouraged and quality treatment is easily accessible. In addition to improved productivity and overall cost savings, investing in mental health safeguards a company’s number one resource: its people.

NAMI-NYC Metro and NEBGH launched their premier Workplace Mental Health Summit in March 2013. These meetings provide an opportunity for EAP, human resource, and benefits executives across an array of sectors to engage in open and dynamic discussions about how their companies manage mental health issues in the workplace.
