Our mission is to advance mental wellness for the people of Texas as a strategic grantmaker and catalyst for change.


Our motto, “Advancing recovery and wellness in Texas,” conveys our strong belief that, with the appropriate services and supports, people can and do recover from mental illness and lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Core Values

Our Commitment to Consumers

Our motto is “Advancing wellness and recovery in Texas,” and those aren’t just words to us. Our staff and advisory board include people with lived mental health experience (or “consumers,” as they’re often known). Our giving is designed to promote the integration of recovery-oriented services and supports at all levels throughout the state of Texas. We’re constantly working to bring people together in support of recovery. And we strive to educate.

For more on our commitment to consumers, read these two stories on our hiring of program officers Tammy Heinz and Stephany Bryan, the foundation’s first “consumer and family liaisons.”
