Hope After Harvey: Mental Health

On August 26, 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit Houston. The city wide devastation has impacted lives of individuals including their homes, well being, and mental health. Our goal is to help educate the public on how to identify mental health symptoms and ways to find help. As Houstonians begin to rebuild from the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, we want to provide resources and education to help them get through this difficult time. Hear from Jim “Mattress Mack” McIngvale (Gallery Furniture), Elizabeth McIngvale PhD, LMSW, Wayne Goodman, MD (Baylor College of Medicine) and Asim A. Shah MD (Baylor College of Medicine and Ben Taub Hospital)
