Episode Description

This month is mental health awareness month in the United States, and we’re kicking off a series on mental wellness and work. Today we discuss how mental wellness connects to faith, barriers to mental wellness at work, and what you can do about it.

Our guest Becca Brune is the executive director of this Congregational Collective, a new nonprofit funded by the H. E. Butt Foundation aiming to make San Antonio’s faith communities safe places for people seeking mental wellness. Previously, Brune was an executive leader with Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, a Dallas-based organization focused on building equitable mental health systems. Over the past 24 years, Becca’s work has spanned a broad array of multi-sector institutions. She has assumed leadership roles in philanthropy, local government, private sector and nonprofits. As a trained mediator, she has facilitated community conversations around natural resource management issues, healthcare, economic development, strategic planning, and community engagement.

We’d like to thank the H. E. Butt Foundation for supporting this series. You can find out more about their work by visiting
