Integrated Care

Pursuant to House Bill 2196 (MS Word), the 81st Texas Legislature directed the creation of a workgroup in 2009 charged with determining effective ways to achieve integrated health and behavioral health services in Texas. The mission of the workgroup is to improve the health of people with and at-risk for mental illness through expanded access to integrated health care services.  By August 31, 2010, the Workgroup must recommend best practices in policy, training, and service delivery to promote the integration of health and behavioral health services in Texas.

For complete information on the workgroup, including contact information and membership, please see the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) page for the Integration of Health and Behavioral Health Workgroup.
