The Public Policy team works to championing legislation that affect positive change on mental and behavioral health issues in Texas. The fight to ensure critical funding to support mental and behavioral health services throughout the Greater Houston Area will be tougher—and more important—than ever. 

Mental Health America of Greater Houston’s legislative work centers on community-driven solutions to promote mental health for all in hopes of building a future with more understanding of mental health conditions and promoting the health and well-being of all people as informed by the work of our Center for School Behavioral Health, Integrated Health Care Initiative, and Veteran’s Behavioral Health programs.
