Mental Health and Substance Use Transition to HHSC

The 84th Legislature made structural changes to the Health and Human Services system including transferring some DSHS functions to the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC).

As of September 2016, all services previously under the Mental Health and Substance Abuse Division (MHSA) transitioned to HHSC Behavioral Health Services as Mental Health and Substance Use (MHSU).

The mission of MHSU is to improve health and well-being in Texas by providing leadership and services that promote hope, build resilience, and foster recovery. Find more information about services at these HHSC sites:

See the HHSC website for more information about the transformation.
