Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network
Mental Health Breakfast


The fifth annual Dennis H. Jones Living Well Network Mental Health Breakfast was held on February 26, 2019 and featured keynote speaker Brendan McDonough, lone survivor of the Granite Mountain Hotshots and subject of the film Only The Brave. Brendan shared his emotional journey of battling depression and post-traumatic stress and highlighted the importance of acceptance for people living with behavioral health concerns.  

With the support of our many committed advocates and sponsors, especially our Presenting Sponsor Cigna and our Partner Sponsors Fed Ex and Private Wealth Management, the 2019 breakfast attracted a record crowd of over 700 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 2020 event are available and feature amenities like VIP reception, event signage, event program ad placement and more, based on sponsorship level. For 2020 sponsorship opportunities, contact Cameron Mann at or 901-516-0516.
