At Mental Health America of Texas,
we believe that mental health should be the cornerstone of public health.
For 80 years, we’ve worked to transform 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.
Help people lead
healthy, meaningful lives.
