Video Submissions

World Mental Health Day

October 10 is World Mental Health Day and we want to hear from you! The Hogg Foundation is asking for videos up to 60-seconds from Texas residents describing how mental health is a universal human right. The first 10 complete submissions will receive a $20 Amazon e-gift card as a thank you. 

Under 18? We’d love to receive videos from youth but like everything else, if you’re under 18, your parent/guardian must sign the release in order for you to submit your video. 

All participants must fill out the submission form.  

Suggested Questions to Answer 

We’ve provided a few questions to help you get started. Please choose one or two questions to answer in your video. 

  • If we subscribe to the idea that mental health is a human right, what responsibilities do we have? 
  • If mental health is a human right, what important issue should we tackle first? 
  • How do non-Western cultures approach mental health that we might all learn from? 

Submit your video:

To have your video shared, and be eligible for one of the 15 Amazon gift cards, both of these steps must be completed:

    Everyone must fill out this form to be eligible. Those under 18 must also have a parent/guardian submit the release form for them. Please note that your email address is required in order for us to know where to send your e-gift card.
