27 Jul Jones joins CEOs Against Stigma effort
Michael J. Jones, the president and CEO of the Institution for Savings,has joined the growing list of business, state and municipal leaders across the Commonwealth vowing to establish stigma-free places of work for their employees. He has signed a pledge to become a CEO Against Stigma, the workplace initiative created by the state chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI Mass).
“I am proud to join with my fellow CEOs from across the region to sign this critically important pledge,” said Jones. “I am proud at the breadth and depth of the programs and assistance that we offer our team and their families who struggle with the challenges of mental health issues every day. I look forward to continuing to do whatever we can to fight the stigma associated with mental illness.”
CEOs Against Stigma partners with the top leaders of businesses, organizations and municipalities across the state to change misconceptions about mental illness by encouraging people to open up and speak freely about the conditions that affect them and their immediate families, and seek treatment.
An important component of the campaign involves bringing NAMI’s In Our Own Voice presentations into the workplace. The presentations feature two people sharing their personal stories of recovery and has been recognized by a leading national mental health researcher as the most effective anti-stigma program in America.
