Visionary Award Lucheon

Each year NAMI San Antonio honors a community leader who has made a significant impact by advocating and working for better mental healthcare in Bexar County. This year we have selected the Honorable Joe Straus, Speaker of the Texas House of Representatives, to receive the 2018 Visionary Award on April 4, 2018.

Speaker Straus has been an advocate for better mental healthcare for years.  In November 2015 the Speaker appointed a Select Committee on Mental Health for the 85th Legislature.  During the legislative session, a record number of bills were passed related to improving mental health care in Bexar County and throughout our state.  While there were a number of significant items that directly benefit Bexar County, few were as important as the bill to replace the San Antonio State Hospital (SASH).  This opportunity to reimagine and rebuild SASH will have a major impact on improving mental health care in Bexar County and South Texas for generations.

We are excited to be able to ask you to join us in honoring Speaker Straus for the work he has done benefiting Bexar County.
