Mental Health in Schools
Who We Are
Established in 1940, the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health envisions a future in which the people of Texas thrive in communities that support mental health and well-being. Using a variety of approaches, including grantmaking, convening, research and public policy, the foundation works collaboratively to transform how communities promote mental health in everyday life.
What We’re Fundraising For
Ensuring our children grow up safe and happy is every parent’s wish. Kids today face unprecedented challenges that impact their mental health and well-being. COVID-19 presented new and unexpected challenges for schools, and these challenges are likely to continue and evolve throughout the current school year and beyond.
The community conditions that impact children’s mental health and well-being are daunting, but we have the power to change them. You have the power to make change. Your contribution will go toward:
- Initiatives that support children and youth, their parents, families and caregivers;
- Policy changes to support creating a culture of safety and well-being in schools
- Helping to advance racial equity and student mental wellness in communities significantly impacted by COVID-19; and
- Efforts to empower youth voice, and build opportunities for youth leadership and self-advocacy.
All with the goal of strengthening mental health for the people of Texas.
The supportive infrastructure children, youth and families need to thrive is under tremendous strain right now. We’re proud to work alongside incredible organizations and individuals working to improve the mental health and well-being of Texans and transform the places where people live, learn, work, play and pray. Your gift will help ensure that their efforts will not be in vain, but they will keep going strong for the people of Texas.
