Young People's Mental Health: Community Conversation


Interested in helping teens and young adults in your community? Join the Community Conversation on July 1 to learn how to recognize the warning signs of mental illness and what actions you can take to help.

DSHS is working with local organizers to conduct Community Conversations around the state focused on teen and young adult mental health. The purpose of these forums will be to spark community dialogue about mental health and substance use, reduce the stigma often associated with mental illness, and explore the steps that families, schools and communities can take to improve mental health and remove barriers to treatment, particularly among teens and young adults.

The audience will include teen and young adult support systems such as educators, health professionals, and parents, as well as young people themselves. All members of the community who have a stake or interest in the welfare of teens and young adults are encouraged to attend. Mental illness and substance use often strike early. Half of all mental health issues start by age 14, and 75 percent by age 24. The good news is that recovery is possible.

National & State Leaders Join Houston in Preparing for 84th Texas Legislature
Two-day Healthcare Conference Explores Options for Healthcare Reform in 2015-2016 Session

(HOUSTON, TX) May 7, 2014 - Three organizations committed to ending health disparities in our region are pleased to announce plans for their 2014 healthcare conference: Designing Healthcare in Texas: How the Past and Present Will Guide the Future, to be held June 3-4, 2014. This year’s conference will inform local leaders and advocates as they prepare for the 84th Texas Legislature—against a backdrop that includes the Sunset Review process that occurs once in 12 years for Health and Human Services, healthcare reform and its impact at the local level, and changes in leadership at the highest levels of state government.

The organizations—One Voice Texas, Harris County Healthcare Alliance and Rice University’s Kinder Institute for Urban Research—are providing a forum for thought leaders to present national, state, and local perspectives on healthcare reform, while discussing various communities’ solutions for creating healthier cities and citizens. Texas ranked #1 for having the highest number of uninsured residents in 2013, according to a Gallup poll of all 50 states released in April 2014.
