Dear Friends,

As I reflect on the past year, I am encouraged by the steps we are taking together to prioritize and destigmatize mental health.

In the wake of extraordinary stressors at home, at work and in our communities, many of us are speaking up about our own mental health and reaching out to others who may be struggling.

In this moment, our mission at The Menninger Clinic has never been more important. Ignited by your support, we are striving to help turn conversation into action by making it easier to access the right care at the right time. We also are developing new tools and services to aid the growing number of Americans affected by substance use issues. And we continue to make a priority of reaching our youngest generations, who are experiencing record levels of mental health difficulties.

This Annual Report on Giving shares just a few ways our collective efforts are creating a healthier, more resilient and compassionate world. Thank you for joining us on this journey as we transform lives and imagine a better future in mental health.


To create a healthy world by excelling in the art and science of mental health care.

OF SHAME Letting Go

Walking the road to recovery is no small feat of courage and resilience, and yet many people living with addiction feel immense shame. Former Menninger patient Missy Overstreet Desaloms shares how she overcame the stigma of her disease — and how she’s now helping others do the same.

I started using Vicodin after the birth of my youngest child, when I was given painkillers for a breast infection caused by nursing. I recognize now that the pills only became a substitute for my alcohol use.

I remember distinctly, when they gave it to me, I thought, “this is what I’m talking about.” I just needed that sense of ease and comfort. I needed to numb out.

It was hard having three children under four years of age. I never put my children at risk, but I knew that I wanted to be healthier and more present for my kids. I was there, and they knew that they were loved, but I was really unhappy. As an adult child of an alcoholic, I wanted better for my kids. I knew that the gig was up. There would be no more drinking or painkillers for this party girl.

Here. NOW. 6


When I got to The Menninger Clinic, I remember being asked, “What do you want out of this experience?” And I said, “I just want some peace. And I don’t want to feel that I have to numb out anymore.”

I was committed to getting sober from the very beginning. But I also had a lot of shame, which is a common characteristic of this disease, addiction. I had twin, four-year-old children and a 15-month-old when I went to Menninger and all I could think of was, “What kind of mom leaves their kids to go into treatment?” I felt like a character in a TV show. “This cannot be

my life,” I thought. Now, I know a good mom is the mom who puts herself into treatment to get healthy and find some joy in life.

The psychoeducational part of Menninger helped me a lot because it taught me about the disease approach to alcoholism and addiction, which helped relieve some of the shame I was feeling. Surrounded by people who thought and felt like I did, I also felt a community around me while I was at Menninger. For the first time in my life, I didn’t feel different or alone.


I was at Menninger for close to 30 days and continued my recovery back home in Dallas. I had to learn how to live in sobriety. It was very uncomfortable in the beginning; very foreign to me. But through my experiences in inpatient and outpatient treatment, and as an active member of Alcoholics Anonymous, I learned how to be a better mom, sister and friend. I learned how to enjoy life.

Life can be a struggle. But I have learned that by accepting and letting go, I do not have to suffer. Menninger gave me a solid foundation to develop an awareness and mindfulness of mental illness. Menninger helped me under stand that I wasn’t broken — I just had a disease. I like helping other people see that, too. After my daughters graduated and my son started his last few years of high school, I made the decision to follow my longtime dream to get my master’s degree. I enrolled at the University of Texas at Arlington and earned my master’s in social work with an emphasis in mental

health and substance use. I am now in private practice, and I feel like I have the best job in the world … I love it.

I work with all kinds of clients who are dealing with a range of issues from substance use and attachment styles to trauma. I am honored to listen to their stories, encouraging them to be vulnerable and be curious about their lives. They really do the work. All I do is help them make connections, from their past to their present, so that they can gain insight into their mental health. We continue to repeat until we repair.

My hope for my future is that I continue on my path of sobriety and continue to grow personally and professionally. I get my energy and motivation from other people, so if I can continue to help others, my life will be a success.

With donor support, Menninger is expanding its evidence-based care for addictive disorders of all kinds. To date, more than $700,000 has been donated toward a capital fundraising campaign to establish The Center for Addiction Medicine and Recovery, which will offer a wide range of services personalized to each patient’s unique needs.

The Center for Addiction Medicine and Recovery will be located in the new Outpatient Services Center. An architectural rendering of a day room is pictured above.

Nationally, symptoms of mental illness in youth are on the rise, prompting mounting calls for attention and action around adolescent mental health. What’s driving these issues in America’s youth? And how can we ensure they’re getting the help they need?

The statistics paint a grim picture. Persistent feelings of sadness or hopelessness jumped 40% for high school students between 2009–2019, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Youth Risk Behavior Survey. During the same time, 1 in 6 youth also reported making a suicide plan, up some 44%.

While there’s no single cause behind soaring youth mental health problems, the growing use of digital media, increasing academic pressure and anxiety over racism, gun violence, climate change and economic uncertainty, among other factors, likely play a role. To put it another way, teens and their developing brains are no match for the stresses and strains of our times.

Here. NOW. 10

The COVID-19 pandemic has only deepened the growing mental health crisis, doubling rates of depression and anxiety among adolescents.

“We’re in a unique time,” says social worker Mychal Riley, LCSW-S, who oversees Menninger 360, one of The Clinic’s community integration programs. “Things we know that are really basic and important for young people, like having a set routine, having social relationships, exercise, getting out and getting exposure to new things; our current environment makes it all harder.”

To help teens in trouble, Menninger has strengthened programs that connect vulnerable adolescents to lifesaving and life-changing mental health care. Here’s a closer look at how we’re taking action on youth mental health.


Created in May 2020, Menninger 360 for Adolescents offers families flexible and acces sible mental health care. The program’s “hospital without walls” approach provides teens with wraparound support, treatment and rehabil itation directly in their homes, communities and schools, making it ideal for families with busy schedules and for parents who don’t feel comfortable sending their child away to long-term residential care or a wilderness program.

Another option for adolescents to work on managing their mental health is Menninger's Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP), launched in June 2021. Over eight weeks, treatment includes group therapy, individual therapy, family therapy, a medication consul tation and support and coaching for parents.

Melanie and Greg Gehrt are grateful for their daughter's treatment at Menninger. 11

“Teens who are in crisis need a jump start.”

“Teens who are in a crisis need a jump start,” says program manager Mallory Mincberg, MEd, LPC. “With an IOP, kids can get some of the same benefits as inpatient or residential care while staying in school. Additionally, they get to practice the skills they're learning in the IOP in their everyday lives.”

Parents Melanie and Greg Gehrt say the program made all the difference in their 16-year-old daughter’s transition from inpatient care at Menninger back to daily life as a high school student. The couple checked their daughter into The Clinic after her anxiety and suicidal thoughts, triggered by the stress and isolation of the pandemic, reached a crisis

point. At Menninger, she stabilized and learned critical coping skills, regaining some of the spark she had lost.

Wanting to see their daughter’s progress continue, the Gehrts signed her up for the IOP after her discharge. The next two months were a blur of activity according to Greg. “IOP — I wasn’t understanding the ‘I’ portion going in. This is intensive.” The family emerged with new knowledge and skills to manage future mental health challenges.

“It was so important for her journey, to go from inpatient to the intensive outpatient program, and to have that continuation of care and focus,” Melanie adds.


marathon … and we’re just learning to pace ourselves and run along with her.”


While in treatment, teens benefit from Menninger’s robust research program focused on advancing understanding of mental illness and accelerating new evidence-based treatments.

Menninger researchers continue to grow what has become one of the world’s largest and most diverse collections of mental health data for research. Data is collected on mental health symptoms, including anxiety, depression, sleep and suicide risk, from both patients and their parents to get a more holistic understanding of the patient’s experience.

“It gives the child or adolescent a voice in their treatment. There may be something that they’re not comfortable sharing with their treatment team, but they’re willing to put it on an iPad or a self-reported paper,” says Director of Research Michelle Patriquin, PhD, ABPP.

Clinicians use the data to track patients’ progress and customize their treatment. The data also lays the foundation for research studies, like Menninger’s development of a new

“This is a

wearable technology called PsychVitals that monitors vital signs and helps reduce the risk of suicide. In another published study, Menninger researchers discovered that adolescents and adults who admitted to The Clinic during the pandemic had more severe mental health symptoms, a finding that highlights why mental health needs must not be overlooked during a global health crisis.


Today’s teens are more open about mental illness, but stigma and misinformation persist. In Menninger’s psychoeducational groups, parents can find support and answers to questions they may have been reluctant to ask.

“The parent education part helped us to better understand mental illness and the ways that we can positively impact our daughter’s experi ences,” says Melanie.

Armed with new insight, the Gehrts say they feel hopeful for the future. Their daughter’s anxiety and suicidal thoughts have dramatically decreased. Thanks to Menninger, Greg says, she also has coping strategies “in her back pocket” and support systems to help her weather the challenges that may lie ahead.

“The reality is that this isn’t a virus she’s just going to recover from. This is a marathon, as they told us many times in our sessions. And we’re just learning to pace ourselves and run along with her.”

Funded by donors, the Patient Assistance Fund helps close the gap for lower income families who need Menninger’s specialized care but fall above the financial threshold for charity care (income less than 300% of federal poverty guidelines). Last year, eight local adolescents in need received treatment for free or reduced cost, thanks to donors’ generosity.

IN CARE Sparking Breakthroughs

Two years ago, Menninger Research Scientist Hyuntaek Oh, PhD, then a postdoctoral researcher, watched with alarm as the opioid crisis spiraled out of control. More than 130 people were dying every day from opioid-related overdoses.

Evidence-based treatment options were few and funding for research fell far short of the need.

Oh didn’t work on the frontlines of the crisis, but he had extensive expertise in neuroimaging and brain stimulation coupled with a bioengi neer’s knack for tackling complex problems. From this unique perspective, he considered the crisis at hand and how he, and Menninger, could be part of the solution.

“I was thinking, ‘I’m using imaging, I’m studying the brain. Let’s think about how we can use brain stimulation to help people get back to their normal lives without using opioids,’” Oh says. With donor support, he began exploring how to reduce opioid craving through a type of targeted brain stimulation called transcranial magnetic stimulation, or TMS.

Here. NOW. 16

For his pilot study, Dr. Oh compared the reward center of healthy brains to opioid-addicted brains.

“I hope that my research can demonstrate that TMS is another tool we can use to help people struggling with opioid use,” he says.


Philanthropic support makes it possible for Menninger researchers, like Oh, to turn their bright ideas into breakthroughs in care. Thanks to the McNair Initiative for Neuroscience Discovery at Menninger and Baylor College of Medicine (MIND-MB), established with funding from The Robert and Janice McNair Foundation, Oh had an unparalleled collection of patient research data at his fingertips to develop his hypothesis, including hundreds of neuroimages, genetic samples and psychological assessments. A $20,000 grant from Menninger’s Presidential Research and Innovation Fund gave Oh an additional boost to begin a pilot study on using TMS to treat opioid addiction.

TMS is a safe and effective medical treatment that uses painless magnetic pulses to stimulate areas of the brain controlling mood. The

treatment is typically prescribed to patients with certain psychiatric disorders, including depression, who do not respond well to antide pressants or who can’t tolerate medications. Menninger offers TMS through The Clinic’s Center for Brain Stimulation.

According to Oh, the brain’s reward center isn’t as sensitive in people with substance use disorders and requires extra stimulation to activate pleasurable feelings. He theorizes that using TMS to stimulate the reward center might reduce cravings in patients who are addicted to opioids.

During his pilot study, Oh scanned the brains of healthy research subjects, not addicted to opioids, and compared them with images of opioid-addicted brains collected over the years through the MIND-MB project. The difference was clear to see, like looking at side-by-side satellite images of a city power outage. While the reward center shined brightly in healthy brains, it was but a dim shadow in addicted brains, signaling a faulty connection.


“Based on what we found within the healthy subject brain, we definitely know that the patient with the opioid-use problem has some dysfunction within [the reward center],” Oh says. He leveraged these findings to secure additional funding for his research from the National Institutes of Health in June 2022. The NIH awarded Oh a highly competitive Research Career Development (K25) Award, which will enable him to advance his research while enhancing his competitiveness and eligibility for continued NIH grants.

Now, Oh has the resources to fully explore the promise of TMS as a treatment for opioid addiction. Participants enrolled in the NIH study will receive five sessions of TMS, with brain scans conducted before and after TMS

treatment to pick up on any changes in function. Using data gathered from the MIND-MB project, the research team will also measure changes in participants’ cravings for opioids and their readiness to quit. Oh plans to recruit 45 patients into the study, which he hopes will pave the way for future investigations.


In addition to Oh’s research, a new crop of studies is in the works, brought to life through the generous support of Menninger’s donors. Staff Psychiatrist Kelly Truong, MD, and Clinical Research Informatics Engineer Jessa Westheimer were selected as awardees of the 2022–2023 Presidential Research and Innovation Fund. Truong’s study aims to

advance the treatment of alcohol use disorder by repurposing lemborexant, a sleep medication, in combination with naltrexone to address alcohol cravings and sleep — two issues that are essential to recovery. Westheimer will focus on improving the prevention of suicide in inpatient psychiatric settings by developing a real-time monitoring dashboard and alert system based on medical-grade wearable technology.

More projects like these are on the horizon, thanks to the support of our dedicated community of donors. Together we are making great strides in better understanding and treating mental illness.



was distributed to support four advanced research projects

The Presidential Research and Innovation Fund launched in 2021 to inspire collaboration and provide seed funding for promising studies across Menninger. Last year, more than $60,000 was distributed to support four advanced research projects, including Oh’s pilot study to develop a new evidence-based treatment for opioid addiction.

During TMS, a magnetic coil is placed against the patient’s head, targeting a specific area of the brain. Dr. Oh believes TMS may help to reduce cravings in people addicted to opioids.

ANNUAL Signature Luncheon

The importance of speaking openly about mental health and encouraging others to do the same was a recurring message at the 12th Annual Signature Luncheon held in May 2022 at the Hilton Post Oak hotel in Houston. This year’s event raised more than $335,000 for The Menninger Clinic Foundation and featured keynote speaker Charles Haley, who lives with bipolar disorder and is an NFL Hall of Fame inductee and former Dallas Cowboys player.

“Silence is a killer,” Haley said at the luncheon. “Being bipolar is something I'm going to deal with for the rest of my life and I'm not ashamed of it.”

Menninger’s Vital Balance Award went to the Harris County Sherriff’s Office in honor of their work to change how law enforcement responds to people with mental illness. Special guests in

attendance included Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner, Vice Mayor Pro Tem Martha CastexTatum, Harris County Commissioner Adrian Garcia, Harris County Sheriff Ed Gonzales and rapper Bun B. The successful event was chaired by Foundation board member Kathy Flanagan, MD, and Clinic board member Susan Sportsman, PhD, RN.
