How to Find Help

Mental Health Crisis

If you or someone you know is a danger to themselves or others, please call 911. Many law enforcement agencies have officers who have been trained to respond to persons who may be experiencing a mental health related crisis.

Mental Health Services

The Texas Department of State Health Services is the agency of state government charged with the responsibility of delivering health, mental health and substance abuse services to Texans. To learn more about DSHS community mental health services that are available in your area for adults or children, you can contact your local mental health authority. You will also be able to access the local information and referral line, which is answered 24 hours a day, seven days a week. These are often know as "Crisis Hotlines." To find the proper mental health authority and their telephone number, please go the DSHS website: (opens a new browser window)
