Posted on May 9, 2017 in Expanding Access, Scroll Images, Uncategorized, We're Awesome, Wellness

Sutter Health is partnering with One Mind at Work and the Steinberg Institute to transform employer-based approaches aimed at improving employee well-being, reducing business costs and addressing the social prejudice that affects 1-in-4 people worldwide who have mental health conditions.

Sutter and the Steinberg Institute will provide expertise, resources and leadership to bolster the reach and impact of One Mind at Work—a global coalition of leading employers driving the adoption of workplace best practices in brain fitness and mental health. The organizations are announcing the partnership in May in recognition of Mental Health Awareness Month.

“Through this game-changing partnership, our two organizations will join One Mind at Work and its existing partners to take action, empower employers to more effectively address workplace mental health, and make a difference in a coordinated way,” said Sarah Krevans, president and CEO of Sutter Health. “As a healthcare employer, Sutter Health knows firsthand the hurdles organizations and employees face — from stigma to barriers to service — and we look forward to sharing our ongoing efforts and experiences in creating a healthier workforce.” Read More
