Texas Mental Health Information

Even though the Hogg Foundation is passionately devoted to mental health, we are not a direct provider of mental health services. We are, however, part of a vibrant ecosystem of behavioral health services and systems in Texas. Below you’ll find links to some of our allies and partners in Texas.

The best portal for accessing information about services in Texas is mentalhealthtx.org, which is maintained by the Texas Health and Human Services Commission. If you are in need of immediate assistance, call 911 or the 24-Hour National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255).
