Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network
Mental Health Breakfast


The fourth annual Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfast was held on March 6, 2018 and featured keynote speaker Marlee Matlin, Academy Award-winning actress and activist. Marlee shared her story of the highs and lows of her Hollywood career and her journeys as an activist.

With the support of our many committed advocates and sponsors, especially our Partner Sponsors, Fed Ex and Private Wealth Management, and our Supporter Sponsors, Lakeside Behavioral Health and The Barnett Group, the 2018 breakfast attracted a crowd of over 650 guests and raised more than $110,000 to benefit mental health care in Memphis. These much needed funds will provide life-saving mental health support to our community and help eliminate the stigma of mental illness. 

Each year, the Dennis H. Jones 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.

Sponsorships for the 2019 event are available and feature amenities like VIP reception, event signage, event program ad placement and more, based on sponsorship level. For 2019 sponsorship opportunities, contact Paula Jacobson at or 901-516-0503.
