Find Your Local Mental Health or Behavioral Health Authority

Texas Health and Human Services contracts with 37 local mental health authorities and two local behavioral health authorities to deliver mental health services in communities across Texas.

LMHAs and LBHAs provide services to specific areas. To find where to get services in your area, you need to know which county or ZIP Code you live in. The online mental health services search form and this service area map (PDF) will help you find the LMHA or LBHA closest to you. If you already know your county's LMHA or LBHA, you can find its contact information below. The LMHA's or LBHA's referral line provides confidential help 24/7.

HHSC requires each LMHA and LBHA to evaluate the mental health needs of communities in their area and plan, develop policy, coordinate services and use resources to address those needs. Each LMHA and LBHA is also required to consider public input, the ultimate cost-benefit and client care issues to:

  • Ensure people who need services can exercise consumer choice by helping them decide on their services, service provider and location of services.
  • Ensure the best use of public money to create a network of service providers and determine whether to provide a service or to contract that service to another organization.
  • Make recommendations on the most appropriate services available to people who need services.
