Located on the southeastern side of the Lone Star State, Houston ranks among the top 10 largest cities in the country. Situated in Harris County, this city of more than 2.1 million residents1 sees thousands of non-resident visitors pass through every month. Drawn to the city by the Johnson Space Center, the Houston Astros, the Houston Rockets, or any number of Fortune 500 companies, people from all over the world come to the Space City each year.

 

Mental Health Statistics
For the Houston-Sugar Land-Baytown metropolitan area, 5.2% of adult residents had an episode of major depression in any 12-month period between 2005 and 2010, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. In addition, 11.8% of area residents over the age of 12 used illicit drugs, and 3.9% of all adults reported using pain pills for non-medical purposes2. Within the city, 42 cases of child abuse were documented in 20113.

 

Houston Offers Nationally Recognized Mental Health Services
Houston residents can receive mental health services through a variety of outlets, including the Mental Health and Mental Retardation Authority of Harris County (MHMRA), the Harris County Hospital District (HCHD), the University of Texas Harris County Psychiatric Center (UTHCPC), the Veterans Affairs Medical Center (VA), and the nationally recognized Mental Health Needs Council. The MHMRA is the primary source for mental health services and offers inpatient, outpatient, rehabilitative, and crises services. This organization serves approximately 16,000 individuals annually4.

 

The HCHD is a full service hospital that provides both outpatient and inpatient care delivered by medical and behavioral staff members. In 2005, almost one in five clients who visited the HCHD received a diagnosis of a mental health condition. The Ben Taub Psychiatric Emergency Center is affiliated with the HCHD and provides approximately 500 psychiatric assessments every month for residents of the Houston region. In conjunction with other healthcare services, the Houston VA, one of the largest in the country, helps over 20,000 veterans every year with mental health care needs5.

 

In addition to the county and city resources available to residents, the University of Houston’s medical school provides a top-rated psychiatric department, social services, and access to clinical psychology for those needing care. The city is also proud to be home to one of the country’s largest community facilities designed specifically to address mental health needs6.

 

The city focuses on viewing residents with behavioral health issues as consumers rather than patients, ensuring they receive adequate care delivered with minimal barriers and unconditional respect. Care plans are designed to be comprehensive and ongoing, and steps are put in place to provide case management and assessment. The city also recognizes and embraces its cultural diversity and takes every measure to offer an inclusive environment of care. Finally, Houston aims to make healthcare services accessible to all its residents by providing resources to every community and every resident in need7.
