Find Help, Find Hope!

Congratulations, Shane! – NAMI Texas Mental Health Professional of the Year

At the NAMI Texas Conference earlier this month, Brazoria County’s very own Mental Health Deputy, Shane Vandergrifft, was honored with the Mental Health Professional of the Year Award. Shane has gone above and beyond his call to duty through his efforts to gather suicide data in the county, and to identify trends in activity so that working solutions can be developed in a more timely fashion. Shane also serves on the Stop.Talk.Overcome.Pain. (S.T.O.P.) governing board, a program that seeks to tackle the suicide epidemic among youth populations.

Shane, we are so incredibly proud of you for what you have done to reduce mental health stigma, raise awareness, and promote recovery in our community.

From all of us at NAMI Gulf Coast, we thank you.
