Texas Behavioral Health Landscape

It is estimated that one in five Texans suffer from some form of mental illness. Yet, only one in three people with a diagnosable mental illness receives treatment. What’s more, an overwhelming majority of Texas counties are designated as Mental Health Professional Shortage Areas, communities without a sufficient number of mental health care workers.
