We Saved the Best for Last:
Join us for our December Member Meeting!

With all of the activities and initiatives taking place simultaneously, the year has flown by! It is time once again for our annual review of Action Group issues, projects and activities.

At our December member meeting, we will be reporting on our robust agenda for this year and next, and discussing the 2017 Mental Health Learning Network findings and 2018 plans for driving toward true mental health parity. You’ll come away with actionable ideas, tools and resources you can add to your health care benefit strategies.

We hope you will join us for a hot breakfast to share some holiday cheer with your fellow Action Group members.

 Update: Action Group Mental Health Learning Network (MHLN)

One in five Americans suffers from mental illness each year. Of those, 60 percent diagnosed with stress, anxiety and depression do not seek treatment, according to the 2016 State of Mental Health in America report.

The Action Group’s MHLN has now heard from a wide array of local and national mental health experts, and the focus is now on turning learning into action. We have compiled a list of actions to improve mental health in the workplace, and we are gathering input from employers about their top priorities for individual and collective actions. We will be reporting on high-level learnings to all employers at the December member meeting.

Innovation Update: Specialty Drug Guiding Coalition

Over 40 Specialty Drug Guiding Coalition members from more than 20 organizations have been working together since February, elevating the discussion to find solutions to the specialty drug challenges affecting employers and their workforces.

As one coalition member said, “We’re sharing our ideas and expertise — essentially our secret sauce — which is only possible because of a real feeling of camaraderie and trust, and a commitment to making things better.”
