Transforming Mental Health Through Community

The Hogg Foundation envisions a future in which the people of Texas thrive in communities that support mental health and well-being. We believe it’s possible to transform how communities promote mental health in everyday life. We support research and learning, practice and implementation, and policy initiatives to achieve this vision.

Hogg Foundation Celebrates Pride

June is LGBTQ+ Pride Month. For Pride Month, we recognize the contribution and impact LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer plus, or just queer) individuals have made to society.

This month, as we celebrate pride, we will examine the mental health and well-being of the LGBTQ+ community in a series of blog posts, podcasts, and social posts. We’ve also put together a list of LGBTQ+ Mental Health Resources for the queer community and their allies.
