Show Notes

At the close of the first session of the Texas legislature to take place during the time of COVID, which had an enormous agenda to cover at breakneck speed, one thing is abundantly clear: meaningful engagement with public policy is challenging work. On this episode of the podcast, we sit down with three people dedicated to amplifying the voices of youth and young adults to advance mental health policy work in Texas. Our guests Río Gonzalez, Aurora Harris, and Raquel Murphy are part of Young Invincibles, a national organization with a Texas branch that is one of the Hogg Foundation’s newest grantees of its Policy Academy and Fellows Program, which aims to increase individuals’ and organizations’ capacity to advance mental health policy in Texas while also increasing the consumer voice in policy development and implementation.
