Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfast

LWN-2017_PodiumShot1The third annual Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfast was held on February 23, 2017 and benefitted the Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network. The event featured keynote speaker Dan Harris, award-winning ABC News anchor and best-selling author. Dan shared his journey to greater health and happiness through mindfulness and why it’s being embraced by individuals and corporations throughout the country.

With the support of partners and our Presenting Sponsors, FedEx and BlueCross BlueShield of Tennessee Health Foundation, the 2017 breakfast attracted a crowd of nearly 600 guests and raised more than $90,000 to benefit mental health care in Memphis. These much needed funds will provide mental health care in our community and help eliminate the stigma of mental illness. 


Each year, the Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfast brings together mental health professionals, community and business leaders to raise awareness about the importance of mental healthcare. Proceeds from the event support the Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network, a resource to help individuals navigate depression, stress and other challenges of life.

Event sponsorships are available and feature amenities like VIP reception, event signage, event program ad placement and more, based on sponsorship level. For 2018 sponsorship opportunities, watch our sponsor appeal video below or contact Paula Jacobson at or 901-516-0503.
