Texas Resilience and Recovery

The Texas Resilience and Recovery (TRR) model promotes a person-centered approach to mental health treatment and early intervention instead of the disease-focused model of the past.

The TRR model of community mental health services is based on the working definition of recovery endorsed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Administration (SAMHSA). Recovery from mental illness and substance use disorders is a process of change through which people improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.

We know that people affected by mental illness can build upon their own supports and strength to recover and be resilient. The TRR model focuses on hope, resilience and recovery for everyone.

Evidence-Based Practices and Resources

The Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) provides adult and children's mental health programs and services based on best research, clinical knowledge, and what matters to people in managing their mental health symptoms. This approach is known as evidence-based and promising practices.

The Centralized Training Infrastructure for Evidence Based Practices (CTI-EBP) is a collaboration between HHSC and the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio to support the statewide delivery of behavioral health services.

The SAMHSA Evidence-Based Practices Resource Center provides information and tools to incorporate evidence-based practices into communities or clinical settings.
