Our podcast series, Into the Fold, is a way for us to move from simply talking about our grantmaking to influencing dialogue and learning about mental health and well-being.
Hosted by “Ike at the Mic,” our public affairs representative Ike Evans, the series captures the human implications of mental health and the factors that influence it, bringing you conversations with mental health experts, consumers, advocates, practitioners, researchers and community leaders from across Texas and beyond.
In today’s blog, we’re presenting a retrospective of our podcast episodes from 2022.
