Children’s Mental Health in Texas


Conditions for Children and the Texas of Tomorrow. Texans' access to public mental health services, and Texans Care for Children described how our state could begin promoting children's mental health better. Right now, on 9 of 14 indicators of children's mental health, Texas is either "failing" or "near failing." Addressing gaps in Texas' mental health spending, connecting children who need treatment to services, addressing shortages of mental health professionals, and preventing children with emotional disturbance from being suspended or expelled from school for minor offenses are a few ways Texas can act to improve lives and mental health now.
