Into the Fold Podcast: Issues in Mental Health
Our podcast series is one of the ways we 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.
September 2023: Listener Question of the Month
September is National Recovery Month. During this month we are highlighting stories of recovery from mental illness. We would love to hear from you on this topic. We would like an answer to this question:
As you look back, what was the single biggest factor in your recovery from mental health struggles? What made it so?
What does “recovery” mean to you?
We will accept responses as either written testimonials or audio recordings. Selected responses will be read or played during an upcoming Into the Fold episode. You will be notified if your response is selected. Respondents are kept anonymous by default.
Send your response to email@example.com. If your audio file is too large to send via email, upload it to this Box folder. In such a case, you should still send an email so we know who you are. Thanks!
