GRANTEE SUCCESSES

Changing Mental Health Policy in Texas

When an organization’s capacity for working on mental health policy issues increases, the needs and voices of Texans living with mental illness have a greater impact on policymaking. Unfortunately, many organizations lack the resources or expertise to tackle mental health policy issues head on. The Hogg Foundation Policy Academy and Fellows Program are increasing capacity and expertise to advance mental health policy in Texas. Learn more

The Practice of Recovery

For many years, individuals who were identified as having a mental illness were merely “treated” with no hope of a better life. However, there has been a shift from a medical model of treatment to recovery-oriented care. The American Psychiatric Nurses Association Texas Chapter is integrating and promoting recovery among organizations throughout Texas. Learn more

As the first agency to offer integrated health care to children in state custody, HCPS is well poised to educate others on model implementation and to spearhead the evolution of the integrated health care model so that it can serve the unique needs of child populations. Learn more

What happens when someone with behavioral health conditions is released from jail? The story of re-entry highlights issues in the Texas criminal justice system. Via Hope is helping people with mental illness re-enter the community with support from trained Peer Specialists and Certified Recovery Coaches. Learn more
