We have created this directory to make it easier for low income communities to access mental health services in the Austin area. By providing information on the type of services offered by various low cost/free mental health service providers, their eligibility criteria as well as their contact information, we are moving under-served communities one step closer to obtaining the services that they need.

Please note that the directory does not indicate an endorsement of any service provider. Additionally, the service providers may sometimes make changes to their services without our knowledge. To that end, please contact them directly to obtain their most up to date information. If you have any suggestions on how we can improve this directory, please let us know here.
