Mental Health Issues . . .Are they impacting your employees?                           February 9, 2017
11:30 am - 1:00 pm
Tuscan Brio Grille, Country Club Plaza                                                                                                              502 Nichols Road, Kansas City, MO 64112

Join Nancy Spangler to learn about the impact of mental health issues in the workplace.

Mental health conditions are highly prevalent, costly in human and financial terms, and significantly affect organizational thriving. Early detection and preventive approaches are equally important for mental health as for physical health, yet are often overlooked. Nancy understands the complex systems that contribute to total well-being – such as human capital development, communication, benefits, population health management, disability management, and health care delivery – she helps to find collaborative solutions. Nancy will discuss resilience and mindfulness and how sills in these areas support mental well-being.

Nancy Spangler, PhD, OTR/L is founder and President of Spangler Associates, Inc. The large portion of Spangler’s career has been devoted to workplace population health management and developing strategies for prevention, early detection, and management of chronic and costly health conditions. Spangler has been a consultant to the American Psychiatric Association's Partnership for Workplace Mental Health for 10 years.

Jan Marrs, Director Human Resources at Black & Veatch will also discuss a local organization called SPEAK UP, which through local contributions is working with the Greater Kansas City Mental Health Coalition to implement mental health programs in the local high school communities.  There will be an opportunity for you to make a contribution to this charity at the meeting.
