Hurricane Harvey Update
The Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute is waiving registration fees for those who serve or reside in counties affected by Hurricane Harvey that have been declared state or federal disaster areas. See details and register here.

Read the entire letter from MMHPI leadership on our response to Hurricane Harvey and the decision to waive registration fees for those who qualify here. Your presence and participation is essential to creating dialogue that is relevant and responsive to the challenges Texans are currently facing.

Contact cwenmohs@texasstateofmind.org to request a waiver, or to request a refund if you qualify and have already paid the registration fee. As much as we would like to remove all costs, this offer does not extend to lodging or transportation expenses attendees may incur.
