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 Austin Independent School District Student Substance Use and Safety Survey showed 16% of all teenage students had poor or very poor coping skills to deal with negative or stressful emotions.
Austin delivers services to its residents through the Travis County Health and Human Services Department (HHSD). The HHSD aims to protect the mental and physical health of all citizens through collaborative efforts. Some of the Austin's top goals include making city facilities smoke-free, providing care to at least 95% of all individuals with HIV/AIDS, 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 adolescents.
The HHSD offers targeted programs to help veterans cope with mental health issues. Services to veterans are a high priority, as the region is home to around 50,000 of them. Suicide rates among veterans are increasing.
The HHSD also provides services for children. The Children's Outpatient Mental Health & Evaluation Services program provides diagnosis, prevention, intervention, and support to children in need. The Austin Child Guidance Center acts as a safe place for families to receive mental health care regardless of their ability to pay. 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, The Inn (a residential program that treats those with short-term, psychiatric crises), Mobile Crisis Outreach, and many others. Each department 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. In 2012, more than 14,400 Austin residents used these programs to receive mental health and social services.
