Are your efforts to prevent wrongful termination worth a couple grand?

It’s almost that time of the year again. Every fall, the Mental Risk Retention Group (MHRRG) releases its annual application for the Negley Awards—an honor bestowed to three community or nonprofit mental health centers excelling in risk management.

Underwritten by Negley Associates, the awards give $10,000 to the first place recipient and $5,000 to second and third place recipients, along with a stipend to attend the Mental Health Corporations of America (MHCA) conference and the National Council conference.

This year, the Negley Awards are looking for organizations with excellent policies and practices to avoid wrongful terminations. If your organization is a shareholder of MHRRG, a National Council member, and/or a member of MHCA, then submit your application by November 15, 2010. Applications for this year’s Negley Awards can be found here.

Behavioral Healthcare wishes all the applicants the best of luck!
