Risk Management

Merit Awards

The Negley Awards are a series of cash grants presented annually to provider organizations who demonstrate excellence in risk management practices. They recognize outstanding achievements in risk management by behavioral healthcare organizations and offer the opportunity for the winners to share their risk management strategies with the whole of the mental health community. The winning organizations are selected from the applications reviewed by the Board of Directors of the Mental Health Risk Retention Group. Since the Award programs inception, more than one-quarter of a million dollars has been awarded to outstanding behavioral healthcare organizations that reduce risk to clients, staff and community.


The Mental Health Risk Retention Group is now providing a Risk Management Hotline service to its insureds. The intent of the hotline is to answer your questions regarding how you can prevent liability claims from occurring at your center.

Ronald K. Zimmet, General Counsel for MHRRG and an expert in this field, is available to answer your questions.

If you would like to discuss something with Ron, please call Marilyn Udis at 800-845-1209 or e-mail mudis@jjnegley.com.

DVD Series

Produced by the Mental Health Risk Retention Group, Inc., the Loss Prevention Series is a proactive program designed to help providers manage risk and improve patient care. The videos and accompanying resource guides are free to MHRRG insureds, and are an excellent source of ongoing training for everyone in the organization -- from the treatment team, to clinical supervisors, to the chief executive officer and board members. Each one-hour DVD features informative and entertaining presentations on key risk management topics by Ronald K. Zimmet, J.D., general counsel for MHRRG.

"We undertook the development of the Loss Prevention Video Program because we equate loss prevention and risk management with good, proactive patient care."
