Home and Community Based Services – Adult Mental Health is a program that provides home and community based services to adults with serious mental illness. The program provides an array of services to meet each individual’s needs. This helps the individual to live and experience successful tenure in their chosen community. Services are designed to support long term recovery from mental illness. Although Texana Center is not a provider for HCBS-AMH, Texana Center does manage the inquiry line for Texana’s six county catchment area and make referrals to the HCBS-AMH program.
Texans 18 or older with a mental illness and Medicaid, may be eligible if they meet one of the following criteria:
If you would like to be assessed for HCBS-AMH, call the Inquiry Hotline at (281) 239-1485 and press option 2.
The Adult Project works collaboratively with the Adult Probation Departments in Colorado and Fort Bend counties and with the Rosenberg District Parole Office to jointly provide intensive case management services to clients with a serious and persistent mental illness who are currently on probation or parole. The focus of intensive services is to keep individuals in treatment to stabilize their mental illness, meet probation/parole requirements, integrate into the community, and prevent hospitalization, recidivism and incarceration.
Texana Center received a grant from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) in collaboration with Fort Bend County to provide services to those individuals who have been incarcerated in the last 12 months with high propensity for recidivism and who are Fort Bend County residents. This program serves adults with serious and persistent mental illness who have experienced multiple psychiatric hospitalizations. This project expands the Assertive Community Treatment (ACT) to the forensic (criminal justice involved) population also known as Forensic Assertive Community Treatment (FACT). Additionally, Texana collaborates with Fort Bend Regional Council to meet the substance use needs of those served. In addition to FACT services, the team has access to flexible funds to use for transportation, transitional housing, emergency food, clothing, etc. to meet the needs of those in the project.
