Mental Health America of Texas is the state’s longest-serving mental health education and advocacy group.
Our proactive, positive approach to mental health issues has been helping Texans address mental health concerns by opening minds since 1935. Today, our reach extends beyond our original intent by serving to promote mental health, working to prevent mental health and substance use disorders, prevent suicide, and ensuring all Texans have access to effective, culturally competent mental health care.
Why We Are Here
We envision a state where mental health is the cornerstone of public health, its stigma is eliminated and all Texans have access to comprehensive, high quality, culturally competent care.
To achieve these goals, we are transforming the systems that promote mental health, prevent mental disorders and substance abuse, and achieve recovery from mental illness and addictions through innovative education, advocacy and services.
MHA Texas serves a vital role as a hub for expert mental health information and resources. We are the only statewide mental health education and advocacy organization that addresses the entire spectrum of mental disorders throughout life.
Who We Serve
Through a wide range of collaborative efforts, Mental Health America of Texas strives to provide consumers, mental health professionals, first responders and public policy leaders with the most comprehensive, evidence-based sources of information related to mental health, substance abuse and mental illness.
Where We Work
To serve Texans across the state, we have local Mental Health America of Texas affiliates in Abilene, Fort Bend County, and Tarrant County, as well as two branches located in Brazoria County and the Rio Grande Valley.
