The Meadows Institute grew out of The Meadows Foundation’s unyielding concern for the people of Texas. In 2014, The Meadows Foundation established the Institute as an independent nonprofit organization. With offices in Austin, Dallas–Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio, and projects in every region of the state, the Meadows Institute has become Texas’s most trusted source for results-oriented information and analysis of effective and efficient mental health policy and programs.

We work at the state, regional, and local levels to help mental health systems improve, share best practices, develop resources, and increase public awareness on the most effective ways to treat mental illness and help people recover. The Meadows Institute’s vision is for Texas to be the national leader in treating people with mental health needs.
