Identifying State and Local Resources
RSVP for the event here.
Please join the Center for Community Engagement, the Texas Grants Research Center, and the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health for Prioritizing Mental Health in our Communities: Identifying State and Local Resources. During the event, Vicky Coffee, Director of Programs from the Hogg Foundation, will share information on mental health trends in Texas, the impact COVID-19 has and is still having on mental health in our communities, as well as their ongoing efforts to inform state-level policies that include funding and support for mental health promotion and prevention in a variety of settings and populations.
We will begin with our storytellers for the evening and conclude with small break-out groups to share and identify specific priorities for varied communities, current outreach efforts, and ongoing resources.
