In Northeast Texas, it’s estimated that 85,000 individuals live with a serious mental illness. Over 60% of counties in our region do not have a general psychiatrist, and shortages in the mental health workforce decrease access to care.
A Continuum of Behavioral Health Care
Adult psychiatry at UT Health North Campus is unique because we provide comprehensive and compassionate care in a healing environment. Our team of mental health professionals includes access specialists, nurses, and a number of psychiatrists who are dedicated to helping patients and providing a good service.
The first step to treating mental illness is getting a proper diagnosis. When patients arrive at UT Health, a psychiatrist performs an evaluation to understand symptoms and then develops a treatment plan. Treatment is customized for each patient and can include medication, therapy, or both.
We believe in a continuum of behavioral health care. Whether it’s working with insurance, collaborating with other specialists, making referrals, arranging transportation, or helping with medications, we do what’s in the best interest of our patients.

- Attention Deficit Disorder (ADHD, ADD)
