The Houston/Harris County Integrated Healthcare Workgroup for Serious and Chronic Illness, launched in 2011, facilitated formal discussion among local chronic disease affiliate organizations in order to create an action plan for addressing the mental health needs of their constituencies as part of an integrated approach to care.

The workgroup also offers a variety of free educational brochures on depression and serious and chronic illnesses such as:
