Support Mental Health this March – We’re Doubling Refer a Colleague Donations!
Recently, given world news and on top of the already challenging effects of COVID-19, mental health is more important than ever. To show our gratitude towards clients and our support, this March PRMS is proud to announce our first Refer a Colleague Double Donations month of 2022. For every referral PRMS receives between March 1 and 31, 2022, we will make a $100 donation – up $50 from our usual amount – to benefit the district branch or other mental healthcare organization of the referrer’s choice.
The Refer a Colleague program, launched in 2013 to show PRMS’ appreciation for our clients and all behavioral healthcare providers who refer and recommend our services to their colleagues, remains one of PRMS’ highest sources of new business. Since Refer a Colleague’s inception, PRMS has donated more than $58,000 to mental healthcare organizations around the country. Last year in 2021, PRMS donated a total of $14,450 to 60 different organizations, from district branches to national non-profits like The Trevor Project and American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

March also recognizes Patient Safety Awareness Week March 13-19th, and honors physicians on National Doctor’s Day, March 30th. Be sure to visit PRMS’ Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn channels during Patient Safety Awareness Week for resources and tips from our Risk Management team, including this 2020 piece written by PRMS Director of Risk Management, Donna Vanderpool, MBA, JD. We are also pleased to announce our support of National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) this month and share our appreciation for psychiatrists and all other physicians who work tirelessly to support the safety, mental health, and overall well-being of their patients. NAMI provides a community of support to those facing mental illness through advocacy, education, and awareness initiatives. Learn more about NAMI and support the cause at www.nami.org.
During this difficult time in our history as we witness the conflict in Ukraine and recognize the effects war has on mental health, not only for those experiencing it first-hand, but for those reading about and watching it from afar. We are particularly thankful for the work our clients, the psychiatric community, and the global behavioral healthcare community provide to combat this in times like these. This March, PRMS has also chosen to support World Central Kitchen to aid in on-the-ground efforts in Poland to feed Ukrainian families and refugees at the border. Join us in supporting the mission of World Central Kitchen – to provide relief through chef-prepared meals in communities impacted by disaster and humanitarian crises – by visiting www.wck.org.
