The documents below contain summary data on both adult and child/adolescent waiting lists for Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHAs). The data represents those underserved due to resource limitations in addition to those waiting for all services.
Please note that the waiting list is not cumulative; it is a “point in time” measure taken on either the last day of the month, or the last day of the month in a state fiscal quarter. The number of persons waiting on the last day of one month cannot be added to the number waiting on the last day of the following months in a state fiscal year, as these may be the same persons, and in which case, duplicative.
For additional information, the DSHS Behavioral Health Databook is published quarterly and is available at http://www.dshs.state.tx.us/mhsa/databook/.
