Bullock and NAMI partner for mental health

Friday, May 13, 2022 by Tai Moses

The Bullock Texas State History Museum and the Central Texas branch of the National Alliance on Mental Illness are teaming up to put the spotlight on mental health with a public conversation. Dr. King Davis, former executive director at the Hogg Foundation for Mental Health and chief of the Austin State Hospital Archives Project, will spearhead a discussion focusing on “the history of mental health care in Texas, its evolution over the years and inspirational plans of action that will impact the future of public health,” according to the news release. Davis’ talk builds on the museum’s Mental Health: Mind Matters exhibition, an immersive, multimedia experience that explores how mental illnesses have been treated historically and how attitudes have changed over time. Find more details about the event and info about admission costs here. Thursday, May 19, 6-9 p.m., Grand Lobby.
