Creating Visible Impact For An Invisible Problem

In partnership with the Nationwide Foundation, Nationwide Children’s Hospital and On Our Sleeves – the movement for children’s mental health – surveyed over 5,000 working adults across the county and found that children’s mental health has a significant and direct impact on corporate success. Over 50% of parents miss a day of work a month due to their children’s mental health.

In today’s episode, EFG’s Alli Murphy is joined by Amanda Dove, Director of Social Impact and Corporate Philanthropy at On Our Sleeves & Nationwide Children’s Hospital. The duo talks about how the nonprofit addresses the youth mental health crisis and builds impactful and purposeful experiences for their corporate partners. Nationwide and On Our Sleeves has a variety of partnerships with companies such as Nationwide Mutual Insurance Company, JOANN, Kendra Scott, Jeni’s Splendid Ice Creams and Big Lots, including the Big Lots Behavioral Health Pavilion and Big Lots Behavioral Health services which were named in honor of the transformational $50 million gift from Big Lots and its Foundation.

In today’s episode, we’ll explore:
