Texas county adds behavioral health program

The commissioners court of Hays County in Texas has approved a new behavioral health program focused on mental health and substance use needs throughout the county.

The move also led to the creation of a behavioral health coordinator position, according to a Feb. 9 news release. The position was developed following an agreement from the county's behavioral advisory team that a program was needed to identify and coordinate mental health resources.

The position will focus on mental health and substance use disparities outside of the criminal justice system across the county, the release said.
