Are Your Mental Health Benefits Effective?

Employers play a critical role in promoting and supporting employees and their families mental health as it impacts productivity, health status, quality of life, and health benefit costs.  MBGH believes it is important for mental health and well-being to sit equally along-side physical health.

In 2019 MBGH is focusing on understanding how Memphis employers are addressing mental health in your health benefits and well-being programs and we are offering specific training and learning sessions to assist you in enhancing the effectiveness of these benefits.

As part of this focus, here are some actions you can take now:

Survey participants get national results for benchmarking and MBGH will get a market-specific report to inform actions to help make your mental health strategies even more effective. Please respond by January 16, 2019Click here for a .PDF copy of the survey questions for your review. Please indicate you are a member of Memphis Business Group on Health. We ask that only one survey be submitted per organization so please coordinate with your co-workers on who will submit the survey.
