It is difficult to put into words the challenges America has faced over the last two years. Every sector has been altered forever. Health care, education, housing, the economy and workforce have undergone generational transformation. A byproduct of these challenges is the impact on mental health for citizens around the world and nowhere is that more apparent than in our own backyard.
According to Mental Health America’s 2021 State of Mental Health, Texas ranks 50th out of 51 states and the District of Columbia in access to mental health care. The ability to access these services is particularly strained in more rural parts of the state like the Permian Basin.
