    Episode 140: What Happened to You? Part III: Moral Injury

    In our What Happened to You? series, we are looking at trauma, at both the individual and community level. COVID-19 has been a generational trauma, affecting children, families, communities, and whole societies. Health care workers have been among the most deeply impacted. For this episode we’re looking at the traumatic impact of COVID on health care workers, through the lens of a concept known as "moral injury." Our two guests are University of Texas at Austin professors Dr. Robert Prentice, professor of business ethics at the McCombs School of Business; and Dr. Read Pierce, professor of internal medicine at Dell Medical School.

    Episode 139: What Happened to You, Part II: Why We Talk About It

    It’s hard to miss the multitude of public conversations about personal trauma taking place these days. Once a very privately held concern, discussing Discussing personal trauma and its long-term impact has become markedly less stigmatized. Increasingly, public discussion is considered empowering, humanizing, and helpful to others with similar experiences.

    In the second of our series of podcasts addressing the relationship between trauma and well-being, we Into the Fold host Ike Evans speaks with Dr. Bruce Perry, co-author with Oprah Winfrey of the recent best-selling book, What Happened to You?: Conversations on Trauma, Resilience, and Healing, about the increased openness and evolving approach to understanding trauma.

    Episode 138: Back to School (with Trauma)

    Episode 138: Back to School (with Trauma)

    it has been two months since the horrific mass shooting at Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas. Tragedies like Uvalde are always a chance to revisit what we mean by “safety,” and where mental health fits in to that. And lest we forget, the worst of the COVID pandemic may be over for most kids, but that can't erase the more than 10.5 million children worldwide who have lost one or both parents during the coronavirus pandemic. In this episode we explore the persisting effects on Texas kids of these two recent disasters. The first segment is an interview with Texas Tribune's Brian Lopez about the aftemath of the UValde shooting. In the second segment we hear from Rosie Guzman and Sandy Salinas, both with Communities in Schools of Laredo, a Hogg Foundation grant partner.

In June of 2022, Hogg Foundation executive director Dr. Octavio N. Martinez, Jr., and Dr. Bill Bush, Texas A&M professor of history and author of Circuit Riders for Mental Health: The Hogg Foundation and Twentieth Century Texas, were the featured guests in a webinar presented by the Bullock Museum. Their conversation connects the past and present of mental health, and shows how building an effective, person-centered mental health system in Texas is a project that spans generations.

    Episode 135: Black Maternal Mental Health

    Episode 135: Black Maternal Mental Health

    One of the biggest disparities affecting people of color in the United States concerns maternal mental health. In 2022, WorkingGroup512, based in East Austin, received a $5,000 grant from the Hogg Foundation for its maternal mental health project. The project provides holistic support and healing to a focus cohort of Black mothers and primary caregivers, ages 16 to 65, caring for at least one child between birth to two years old.

    In this episode of the podcast, we speak with Neishai Gregory, a doula who works with Working Group 512, and Virginia Baldwin, a mother and client, to learn more about the organization’s work building a community of care for Black women as they experience the mental health challenges of pregnancy and parenting.

Really interesting, and not just for mental public health junkies

I’ve been listening to this for a while, and highly recommend it for anyone even vaguely interested in mental health issues. The host has a real gift for asking interesting questions and then actually listening to his interviewees’ responses, which makes for good listening.

If I can recommend a specific episode, 38 is a bit old now, but I listened more than once and recommended it to a couple of friends having a hard time processing the 2016 election fallout. The wrap-up at the end was particularly helpful.
