Mental Health & Substance Use

Thank you for visiting the Texas Mental Health and Substance Use web page. The Department of State Health Services maintains this web page, but 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 Mental Health and Substance Use programs transferred to HHSC from DSHS.
