Chris Mann, managing partner and CEO of MorganFranklin Consulting, has joined the advisory board for Pivotal Moments, a non-profit whose mission is to educate, support, and inspire young people to eliminate the stigma of mental illness and to stand up for mental wellness in America.
Pivotal Moments was founded earlier this year by Robert Morgan, co-founder and former CEO of MorganFranklin Consulting, in response to mounting research and national events that point to the need for more focus on mental health in schools, communities, and the workplace.
“Chris is an inspirational leader who understands the importance of focusing on mental health at home and work,” said Morgan. “I am excited to have his support as we move forward with this important mission.”
Mann joins a prominent group of leaders in business, sports, and media working with Pivotal Moments to raise funds and host events to support mental wellness.
“I am happy to become part of the Pivotal Moments advisory team and to help young people in our community,” said Mann. “Mental health challenges are more prevalent than we realize at home, in schools, and in the workplace. Pivotal Moments is creating a wonderful platform to bring more awareness to mental wellness and the impact of mental health issues on our daily lives.”
Pivotal Moments raises money to develop online learning tools for schools, create up-stander citizen leadership programs, and to provide financial support to organizations who offer mental health and wellness treatments to those who cannot afford them. The organization recently hosted its Inaugural Gridiron Rivalry Classic on April 16, a celebrity golf tournament that revisits one of the greatest rivalries in NFL history – Dallas and Washington, D.C.
