Initiatives & Programs


The major goal of the Think.Change initiative is to reduce stigma associated with mental illness. Through this initiative, the Health Foundation will use a Collective Impact framework and research-informed constructs to reduce stigma. As an emerging initiative, community partners (i.e. Brain Trust, El Paso Community Behavioral Health Consortium and other regional partner groups). will work together to identify appropriate indicators to measure change toward the initiative’s goals and objectives.
