Connexus Energy has been recognized for leadership in promoting mental health by the Mental Wellness Campaign for Anoka County.
The Healthy Body, Healthy Mind award was presented recently to the Connexus board of directors by Anoka County Commissioner Rhonda Sivarajah and Cynthia Blesi, treasurer of the Mental Wellness Campaign for Anoka County.
“Thank you for leading by example,” Commissioner Sivarajah told the board members. “Your commitment demonstrates that mental health is as important as physical health.”
“You give us hope,” added Blesi.
About 50 percent of sick days are related to mental health. Untreated mental health issues cost billions in lost productivity every year in this country.
Connexus staff have been involved with the Mental Wellness Campaign for Anoka County since the county launched it in 2004.
The Campaign’s mission is to promote increased public awareness, understanding and acceptance of mental health care.
