It is with profound sadness that the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health announces the recent passing of Stephany J. Bryan, senior program officer and consumer & family liaison for the foundation since 2008. She died on Sunday, February 14, 2021 from COVID-related complications.
For mental health advocates, consumers and family members as much as for the Hogg Foundation itself, the loss of this champion of mental health is devastating. Though others will undoubtedly carry the torch, she will never be replaced. Her intelligence, hard work and deep passion for others will be missed.
As much as a mental health pioneer, Stephany was a dear friend and colleague. The foundation will be saying much more in the weeks to come about her life and work, as well as celebrating the example she set for others. In the meantime, our hearts go out to her loved ones and family, as well as all of those working in mental health throughout Texas and the nation who will feel the impact of this loss.
