A very outspoken part of our mission is how to improve mental health in our region. Mental wellness is part of our daily lives and studies show that better mental health outcomes lead to improved physical health and vice versa! We encourage everyone to take time and evaluate issues you may not be overly aware of in yourself or your loved ones. It’s important to ask “Are you okay?” and genuinely listen to the stories of those who are struggling around you.
Okay to Say™ is a community-driven movement initiated by the Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute to increase the public’s awareness about how mental health affects us all.

Members like police chiefs, mental health providers, school teachers, industry leaders, legislators, and others establish a shared organization for coordinated planning and implementation.
We have had the pleasure to support the creation of local BHLTs (Behavioral Health Leadership Teams) that are taking great strides in the recognition and implementation of solutions to issues surrounding mental health in Texoma.
The Texoma Health Foundation Park is part of our place-based philanthropy effort in our community.
