Reports and Assessments for Behavioral Health in the Panhandle

Initial System Assessment of Texas Panhandle Local Behavioral Health Systems
In September 2016, we commissioned MMHPI to conduct an initial assessment of behavioral health systems in the Panhandle region. They recommended specific areas for our organization to focus on as we work to achieve our goal of improving behavioral health care in our region, including:

  • Crisis system improvement to promote access and engagement
  • Developing the children’s system of care
  • Improving regional access to behavioral health care
  • Improving integration of behavioral health and primary health
  • Improving criminal justice and jail-based services
  • Improving veterans’ services
  • Workforce recruitment and retention, targeting medical, nursing and other counseling professions.
