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.
