Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHAs)

Community mental health centers, also referred to as Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHAs) provide services to a specific geographic area of the state, called the local service area. DSHS requires each authority to plan, develop policy, coordinate and allocate and develop resources for mental health services in the local service area.  DSHS contracts with Community Mental Health Centers to deliver mental health services in communities across Texas.

Each LMHA is also required to consider public input, the ultimate cost-benefit, and client care issues to:

  • Ensure consumer choice and the best use of public money in assembling a network of service providers and determining whether to become a provider of service or to contract that service to another organization, and
  • In making recommendations relating to the most appropriate and available treatment alternatives for individuals in need of mental health or mental retardation services.

To find mental health services in your area, please refer to the table below or search for the referral line phone number of your Local Mental Health Authority (LMHA) using the online mental health services search form. You may call the referral line of the LMHA in your area for confidential help 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
