Employer Leadership Summit Shines in Virtual Environment!


  • Don’t miss the FLIPBOOK! Connect with speakers, sponsors and employer resources.
  • Governor Tim Walz declared April 29, 2020, MENTAL HEALTH ADVOCACY DAY in honor of the Summit.

Amidst a worldwide health crisis where everyone is juggling competing priorities, we are gratified that so many of you joined the Employer Leadership Summit to help us pave The Path Forward for mental health and substance use disorders.

THANK YOU to attendees, Action Group members, sponsors, speakers and staff who never wavered in their support of the Summit as it became clear we could not meet in person.
