Public Consulting Group report – “Analysis of the Texas Public Behavioral Health System: Recommendations for System Redesign”

As you may know, the Public Consulting Group (PCG) recently released Phase II of their comprehensive analysis of the Texas public behavioral health system. This phase of their analysis contains recommendations for system redesign. Please see below for links to both Phase II and Phase I.

On Thursday, November 1st from 10 am to noon, the Department of State Health Services (DSHS) is holding a stakeholder meeting on the PCG report. They are inviting the public to come and submit comments about the report. The staff at NAMI Texas strongly encourages you to attend and share your perspective on the Texas public behavioral health system with DSHS. Alternatively, you can submit comments to me, and with the approval of our Executive Director and Public Policy Committee, I will present your ideas to DSHS. My email address is ghansch@namitexas.org. The meeting is being held at the Criss Cole Rehabilitation Center, 4800 North Lamar, Austin, TX.
