Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance’s (PBHA) measurement workgroup and other stakeholders have assembled this information to raise awareness as well as to support and strengthen community coordination and collaboration around improving access to mental health and behavioral health care. The collection and sharing of these indicators are meant to help determine some of the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats of the behavioral health system in the Panhandle. We hope that these community health indicators or data will support your work and efforts around improving access to health care. We also caution you not to make assumptions about the performance of any organization related to the data.
If you are a community member or an organization serving the Texas Panhandle, we welcome your feedback and suggestions for alternate information and data sources to be considered.
