Episode 72: Reflections from the African American Faith-Based Initiative Grantees

12/11/2018
More
Why would a secular foundation enter into a partnership with faith organizations? In the words of one our guests, Dr. Brenda Richardson Rowe, "Mental health is truly everybody's business, and when you look at the history specifically of the African-American culture, you see that the foundation of all of our information comes from our pastors and our faith leaders." In 2014, the Hogg Foundation launched a groundbreaking new initiative; the African-American Faith-Based Education and Awareness...

Episode 71: Shared Inquiry: A Better Way to Learn

Complexity is a defining feature of public health matters, and mental health is no exception. So, what’s the right answer, or are there numerous right answers, and where do we even begin as we set out to identify effective solutions for better mental health in communities? Emily Bhandari, Strategic Learning and Evaluation Program Officer for the Hogg Foundation, and Marisa Zappone, Senior Manager for Aligned Impact at Mission Capital in Austin, Texas, join us to shed some light on the...

Episode 70: Designing for Mental Health

10/12/2018
More
Design is all about learning while doing. Its hallmarks are a flexible, iterative approach to complex problem-solving, as well as a set of tried-and-true techniques for identifying a problem, exploring possible solutions, and then prototyping what seems most promising. But did you know that design also involves empathy? That it involves listening and humility? In this episode Kat Jones of the Design Institute for Health at Dell Medical School, part of the University of Texas at Austin,...

Episode 68: Celebrating 10 Years with Dr. Octavio N. Martinez, Jr.

8/22/2018
More
Dr. Octavio N. Martinez, Jr. is the fifth executive director of the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health, having held that position since 2008. His time illustrates a number of key points about what leadership in the mental health space looks like in 2018. First, to be effective one needs to be a connector—someone who can build bridges between the disparate worlds of providers, policymakers, funders, advocates, consumers and families. Second, one needs the ability to listen, and to be confident...

Episode 66: Moving Upstream: How Funders Can Address Root Causes

7/25/2018
More
The Well-being in Rural Communities initiative aims to support rural communities in their efforts to transform their own mental health. A total of about $2 million was awarded to organizations in five rural communities in Texas: Bastrop, Brooks, Morris, Nacogdoches, and Victoria counties. Funders are fond of talking about the impact their grantmaking has on people and communities, but it works both ways: difference-making organizations are transformed by their engagement with communities. On...

Episode 65: The Past Does Matter: A Look at Post-Traumatic Slave Syndrome

7/13/2018

History matters, but it also presents challenges for those hoping to move past trauma and toward healing. This is as true for historically oppressed groups as it is for individuals. In this episode for Minority Mental Health Awareness Month, Dr. Ryan Sutton, director of the African American Male Research Initiative at the University of Texas Austin, leads us through a conversation about Post-traumatic Slave Syndrome (PTSS) and how taking account of history in the right way can support the...

The Hogg Foundation has launched a new grant initiative that we are calling Well-being in Rural Communities. It’s focus is five rural counties in Texas: Bastrop, Brooks, Nacogdoches, Titus and Victoria. Its goal is to support collaborative learning, planning and action to transform mental health and well-being in those communities. This is an ambitious goal. For it to succeed, we must advance in our own understanding of how to build bridges with rural communities. Our guest, Dennis Mohatt,...

Recovery to Practice (RTP) was launched by Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) in 2013 aimed at infusing recovery principles into six behavioral health professions: psychology, psychiatry, nursing, social work, peer support and addiction counseling. In 2015, the Hogg Foundation launched its own RTP grant program to disseminate the recovery curriculum throughout Texas. Since then, six organizations have received funds totaling $1.7 million. One grantee is the...

Episode 62: Breaking New Ground with Veterans

6/25/2018

June is PTSD Awareness Month. One group in particular, veterans, has a huge stake in our advancing understanding of PTSD and ways to treat it. There are 1.4 million veterans in Texas, and while many military families are resilient, some struggle with behavioral health concerns. The UTHealth Trauma and Resilience Center just opened its doors at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston. This first-of-its-kind center takes a team-based, integrated approach to the behavioral...

Episode 61: Hope For Healing: Community Resilience in the Face of Trauma

5/15/2018

During the last couple weeks of March, a series of package bombings shook the community of Austin, Texas and made national headlines. This tragedy hits close to home for many in Austin, including us here at the Hogg Foundation. In response, we co-organized an event, called Hope for Healing, which took place in East Austin—the area of town where a number of the bombings occurred. The event offered dialogue, healing and connection, as well as candid conversation about what many of us...

Into the Fold, Episode 59: Fostering Resilience in Our Communities

5/10/2018
More
Last year, when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston and other communities in Texas, “resilience” was a hot topic. For those of us interested in transforming how communities promote mental health, resilience is more than just a catch-word, but a phenomenon that needs rigorous study and nuanced understanding. What do we need to know about resilience, how is it fostered, and what does fostering resilience commit us to doing? Helping us to answer these questions is Wendy Ellis, the project director of...

In Texas, there are more than 120,000 recipients of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), a program initiated under the Obama administration that provides administrative reprieve from deportation proceedings to qualified young people who meet certain criteria. Many of those young people are now on our college campuses, going about their lives as students. With DACA's fate now up in the air, it's time to take a look at the mental health needs of DACA students, or Dreamers, as they're...

This is the second part of our conversation with Dr. Christen Smith about the effects of police violence and other forms of inequality on the health of blacks in the U.S. and beyond.

“Health” is not something that exists in a vacuum. The Hogg Foundation is driven by our conviction that a more just world is also a healthier one. That’s one of the reasons why we talk so often about the “social determinants of health.” The World Health Organization defines social determinants as “the conditions in which people are born, grow, work, live, and age, and the wider set of forces and systems shaping the conditions of daily life.” For blacks in the U.S., a key social determinant...

Austin has a vaunted reputation as the "Live Music Capital of the World", and the city's signature live music event, Austin City Limits, is taking place right now over the next two weekends. It's a blast for music lovers and a cash cow for the city. But to say that the highly competitive and demanding Austin music scene can tax a musician's mental health is an understatement. The SIMS Foundation was started in 1995. It is named in honor of Sims Ellison, an Austin musician who took his own...

3/9/2018

It's an exciting moment for mental health philanthropy in Texas. Increasingly, there is an awareness that mental health is too complex a problem to address without collaboration across different sectors--health and human services, housing, criminal justice, and education to name a few. "Collaboration" is an idea that is widely invoked, but rarely broken down into its core elements. In this episode Katy Bourgeois, a senior consultant with Mission Capital of Austin, is here to inform and...
