Mental Health in Austin

Texas ranks below the national average in the number of mental health professionals per 100,000 residents.2 As a result, the city of Austin is offering some community based services that aim to bring solutions and solace to the people who are suffering from a mental illness. The citizens of Austin can benefit from many services that aim to help children, veterans, families, and other segments of the population. People's Community Clinic is one of the best community clinics in Texas that offers pharmacy and lab services on-site. The aim of this clinic is to serve people who have little or no health insurance. Children, adults, and the elderly can benefit from these services.3 Please call 512-478-4939 for further information.

Current Initiatives

There are some pertinent initiatives that would improve mental services in Texas. The graduate education programs for behavioral health professionals should be expanded to include psychiatry, social work, psychology, nursing, and counseling. Some of the initiatives promote the idea of asking professional boards to gather data that will help identify specific ethnic, cultural, racial, and linguistic workforce shortages. The current initiatives also seek to receive investment for the advanced technology that is required for suicide prevention training.5
