Dallas, Texas is located in the county of Dallas and is home to over 1.2 million Texans1. Millions more pass through this hub in the northeastern part of the big state for a variety of reasons. The Dallas-Fort Worth International Airport brings many visitors into the area every day, and some tourists come to stay and enjoy major events like the college rivalry of the Cotton Bowl or the annual State Fair of Texas. Residents and tourists alike enjoy work and play in the city that is proud to feature the Dallas Stars, the Dallas Mavericks, and the Dallas Cowboys.

 

Mental Health Statistics
The Texas Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System reported that 20% of residents in the Dallas metropolitan area experienced more than five days of poor mental health in any given month in 20102. Additional data from a survey on drug use and mental health indicated that 13.2% of adults in the region used illicit drugs between the years of 2005 and 2010, and over 8% reported having a substance addiction. Just over 22% of all adult residents reported at least one episode of binge drinking in any given month. In addition, approximately 6% of all area residents were reported to have had a major episode of depression during those same years3.

 

Mental Health Services
This rich and vibrant city offers a broad spectrum of mental health services to its residents under the supervision and direction of the Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS). Among the programs residents can access are general mental health, outpatient, inpatient, and child and adolescent mental health care. Adult services in the region include substance abuse treatment, employment assistance, housing recovery, and ongoing rehabilitation and treatment for those with mental illness.

 

Services available to children include screenings, assessments, treatment, crisis intervention, and management services. Medication education, family counseling, and ongoing management are all part of the continuum of care offered to Dallas’s youngest residents. Assistance with medication expenses and additional resources for parents can also be found through DSHS Childrens’ Mental Health that serves youth between the ages of 3 and 17.

 

The city of Dallas strives to provide the most effective, affordable, and comprehensive care to all its residents. The Continuity of Care Task Force (COCTF) is one more step in that effort. The COCTF works to connect all aspects of care so that individuals can have a seamless experience while they receive the help they need. Through collaboration between various departments and medical avenues, the COCTF is able to ensure that care is provided across regions and any barriers to treatment are overcome.

 

In addition, the state’s Council for Advising and Planning (CAP) for the Prevention and Treatment of Mental and Substance Use Disorders ensures that any resident needing care receives client- and family-centered assistance, ongoing referrals, management, and the tools they need to emerge resilient4.
