Scattergood Foundation

Advancing Innovative Strategies for Change in Behavioral Health

CEOs from around the country are coming together to talk about how formally and informally incorporating mental wellness into the corporate culture is good for employees’ mental health and also good for business.


These repositioning collaborations can range from alliances and back-office consolidations, to programmatic joint ventures, to mergers and acquisitions.

///// Community Impact

ParityTrack is a collaborative project that works to aggregate and elevate the parity implementation work taking place across the country.

Enabling Positive Community Impact
