Public Policy: Targeted Populations

Barriers in access to and receipt of mental health care disproportionately impact vulnerable individuals and communities. Targeted interventions that reduce barriers can improve the physical, emotional, and mental health of those most in need. To promote equity in access and delivery of care, Texas should:

Improve Maternal Mental Health
Eliminate Ethnic and Racial Disparities in Mental Health 
Mitigate the Impact of Poverty & Economic Instability on Mental Health and Well-being 
Enhance Mental Health Coverage for Veterans 
Eliminate Mental Health Disparities for LGBTQ+ Individuals 
Improve Mental Health Treatment Access for Co-occurring IDD
