Austin, Texas, situated in Travis County, is home to over 840,0001 residents and several major corporations. Google, Texas Instruments, Whole Foods, Apple, 3M, and eBay have chosen Austin for their regional or home office locations. With a thriving business architecture, the city is able to sustain entertainment and academic excellence while providing ample services for its many residents.

 

Mental Health Statistics
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 20% of adults living in Travis County reported some form of mental health issue between 2008 and 2010. The county also saw a 33% rise in psychiatric inpatient care in those years. The Mental Health Task Force and (MHTF) and the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS) reported that in 2010, 92% of individuals readmitted to a hospital more than four times in a one month period had substance use issues and 100% had some classification of mood disorder. The Austin Independent School District Student Substance Use and Safety Survey showed that 16% of all teenage students had poor or very poor coping skills to deal with negative or stressful emotions2.

 

Behavioral Health Initiative Makes an Impact in Austin
Austin delivers services to its residents through the Travis County Health and Human Services Department (HHSD), and they aim to protect the mental and physical health of all citizens through collaborative efforts that include volunteers, staff members, medical professionals, social service providers, private organizations, community outreach efforts, and residents. Some of the goals Austin is focused on achieving include making city facilities smoke free, reaching at least 95% of all individuals with HIV/AIDS to provide them with care, obtaining housing for at least 75% of those in need, and seeing an improvement in mentoring and positive peer modeling in at least 75% of all Austin adolescents3.

 

As part of Travis County’s HHSD, residents of Austin benefit from the many services provided on county and city levels. Services to veterans are a high priority as the region is home to approximately 50,000 veterans, and suicide rates among these individuals are increasing. The HHSD offers targeted programs to help veterans cope with mental health issues.

 

Other services offered through the HHSD include the Children’s Outpatient Mental Health & Evaluation Services program that provides diagnosis, prevention, intervention, and support to children and families in need. The Austin Child Guidance Center acts as a safe place for families and children to receive care regardless of their ability to pay, and in 2012, over 4,700 children received counseling services there.

 

Austin Travis County Integral Care (ATCIC) oversees all of the programs offered to residents. These include Early Childhood Intervention, Co-occurring Psychiatric and Substance Use Disorders Programs, The Inn (a residential program that treats those with short-term, psychiatric crises), Mobile Crisis Outreach, Developmental Disabilities Services, Emergency Psychiatric Services, and many others. Each of these departments is focused on addressing the specific issues related to their target client bases, and together, they work to improve the well-being of all citizens. Overall, more than 14,400 Austin residents used these outlets to receive mental health and social services in 20124.
