Mental Health America (MHA) – founded in 1909 – is the nation’s leading community-based nonprofit dedicated to addressing the needs of those living with mental illness and to promoting the overall mental health of all. MHA’s efforts are guided by its Before Stage 4 (B4Stage4) philosophy – that mental health conditions should be treated long before they reach the most critical points in the disease process. To help employees identify mentally healthy workplaces, MHA created the Bell Seal program to recognize and guide employers who are committed to creating them.
“Receiving the Bell Seal for Gehring Group and Bentek shows that our full wellness program has been put to wonderful use by all employees to encompass all aspects of wellness. Everyone’s wellness journey is always different with each individual, but mental health trumps all, because if you aren’t in a good place, it’s hard to focus on your other goals.” -Joelle Kantor, MCHES, CCWS, Senior Wellness Coordinator at Gehring Group
In addition to the Bell Seal for Workplace Mental Health recognition, Gehring Group | Bentek is also the recipient of South Florida Business Journal’s Healthiest Employer Award, the Consortium for a Healthier Miami-Dade’s Florida Worksite Wellness Award, and Wellness Workdays’ Best Wellness Employer Award.
