The State of Mental Health in Texas

Texas currently ranks 37th in the United States for mental healthcare. Texas Health & Human Services (THHS) is responsible for improving upon their current mental healthcare system, and for providing the resources and quality care necessary to build resilience in their communities. THHS determines the standard of care that all Texas residents can expect when they seek treatment from a licensed counselor or therapist. THHS programs support people with mental illness and substance use disorders through education, crisis lines, counseling, support groups, and alleviating the financial burdens associated with these services.

Currently, the THHS is working on reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, while improving accessibility in all phases of mental illness. From prevention to recovery, THHS has partnered with various community organizations and other agencies to make sure that all residents have access to the resources that promote their well-being and ability to prosper. This includes access to therapists, psychologists, and counselors throughout the state.

For assistance in navigating treatment for substance abuse, call the Texas Substance Abuse 24/7 Helpline at 1-866-971-2658.

If you are LGBTQ+ and you need support, contact The Trevor Project at 1-866-488-7386.
