The Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) is conducting a survey for people with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD) who are interested in occupational training opportunities in Texas. Providers, advocates, family members and others may also participate.  This survey is being conducted in response to Texas Senate Bill (SB) 2027 (85th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, 2017) authored by Emergence Health Network.

SB 2027 requires a study to determine regions in Texas where occupational training programs should be improved or expanded and strategies for placing people with IDD into fulfilling jobs after attending existing or improved occupational training programs.

This survey will provide essential feedback on respondents’ education and occupational interests.  This feedback will be shared with the governor, the lieutenant governor, the speaker of the House of Representatives, the appropriate standing committees of the Senate, and the House of Representatives no later than December 2018.

Hope Inside the Mental Health System TV Special

Hear from our EHN experts and members of our El Paso community about how mental illness has impacted their lives and how treatment can make a difference.

“We are proud to be part of such a collaborated effort to help with mental health awareness in our community,” said Kristi Daugherty, EHN CEO. “If you have heart problems or a broken arm you seek treatment so you can get better right? Mental illness is no different.  The brain is an organ in our body just like the heart and we need everyone to know that it is ok to seek treatment to manage a behavioral health condition. We hope you tune in to watch.”

Spotlight on Success

East Valley Outpatient Clinic

Roman Murillo

Emergence Health Network offers a variety of services for individuals with a mental health diagnosis that focuses on the continuum of care from assessments to caseworker visits, counseling, medication management, doctor services and much more.  EHN also has four mental health outpatient clinics throughout the city to ensure that residents in El Paso have accessibility to care.

Roman Murillo says the services he receives at the EHN East Valley Outpatient Clinic have made a difference in his life. “They care about the population of people who have mental health issues. Sometimes we can’t make it alone, we need help and Emergence Health Network helped me manage my depression and believing I can get better.”

Prior to receiving services at EHN, Roman says he lived in a foster home and had to depend on a lot of people because he wasn’t managing his illness.  “Now I live in my own apartment and I am more independent.  I am more positive and not hopeless.  The professionals at EHN help you stay on track,” Roman added.

Westside Integrated Care Clinic

Jose Luevano

EHN has four Mental Health Outpatient Clinics located throughout El Paso, but the Westside Integrated Care Clinic is unique to the El Paso area because here, clients can be seen for both their primary care and behavioral health needs under one roof, during the same visit.

“The nurses and staff here are very friendly.  The clinic is clean and nice, the doctors are excellent and treat your good,” said Jose Luevano. “The quality of my life before coming to the Westside Clinic was very poor.  My health was deteriorating; now that I am here I can live again. “

Research shows that people with mental illness have more co-occurring health conditions.  68% of adults with a mental illness have one or more physical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, diabetes and obesity and more than 1 in 5 adults with mental illness have a co-occurring substance use disorder.

The coordination of mental health, substance abuse, and primary care services produces the best outcomes and is the most effective approach to caring for people with complex healthcare needs.
