Our MHA Golf Classic & Cocktail Party was a tremendous success, as our players and guests enjoyed a beautiful day and evening at Beacon Hill Country Club in Atlantic Highlands! Thank you to all our Sponsors, Golfers, and Supporters for helping to raise awareness and funds for mental wellness.
We were also very proud and humbled to honor Robert C. Garrett, FACHE, CEO of Hackensack Meridian Health (HMH) for his leadership during the pandemic and ongoing support of behavioral health. During his acceptance, Mr. Garrett likened the stigma and seriousness of mental illness to that of cancer many years ago, citing that 16 million Americans are living full and happy lives even though they have cancer. “We need to do the same thing with mental illness,” asserted Mr. Garrett. “We need to do it, and we can do it, and we will start here in New Jersey.”
Schroeder Stribling, the new President and CEO of Mental Health America, recorded her celebration and acknowledgement of Mr. Garrett as a champion of mental health. Please click below to view that video, and join us in celebrating Mr. Bob Garrett and the healthcare heroes of HMH.
