Overview of Mental Health Resources in Irving, Texas

Irving is a main core city and an inner suburb circle in the city of Dallas.  The city has a total area of 67.7 square miles (175 km2) and approximately 240,373 people in 2017 according to the U.S. Census.  It is a humid subtropical climate. The median income in the U.S. Census for the year 2000 was at $50,172 for a family and there were approximately 10% of the population below the poverty line.  Citigroup and Verizon are the largest employers.  In 2007, it was reported that an estimated 33% of the population were from outside of the U.S.  It was the first home of the NFL team Dallas Cowboys and was the home of the Texas Musicians Museum, but they left the city without any cultural attractions when they decided to leave in 2018.

The rate of homeless people has increased in Irving during the past year.  In 2018, Texas State lawmakers recognized the link between mental health illnesses with high crime risks and homelessness.  In the city’s Good Elementary School, 93% of the children qualify for free or reduced-cost meals.  The Brookings Institution, a nonprofit public-policy organization, reports that the inner-ring suburbs are now facing the same challenges as in major cities.  The report shows that about 47% of the population living below the poverty line was in the suburbs in the Dallas area in 2008, up from 41% in 2000.  Approximately one in five children in Texas is suffering from a mental illness.  An estimate of one in four people in Texas experiences some form of mental illness, but the state ranks as 49th in the nation in per capita public mental health expenditure.  The state of Texas had a 4.2% divorce rate in 2016 according to the National Vital Statistic Report compared the U.S. rate of 6.9% in the same year.

Human Rights Campaign Municipal Equality Index named Irving as one of the worst cities to live in for the LGBT community.  They rated 6 points out of 100.  The index studies how inclusive municipal laws, policies, and services are for the LGBT+ community.  Irving was one of the lowest scores in the nation, including in anti-bullying practices.  LGBT+ adults are significantly more likely to suffer from mental illness than a heterosexual adult.  LGBT+ students in the Fort Worth area are about three times more likely to have considered suicide than non-LGBT+ students in 2017.

How We Can Help

Like many cities, Irving’s mental health services and providers can not keep up with the growing amount of extensiveness in the city’s mental health needs and the growing number of residents.  It can become frustrating trying to find help when there are limited resources. Finding a good connection in a timely manner can make all the difference. When meeting a therapist, be sure to list your symptoms and concerns to make certain that you remember everything that you want to discuss.  List any questions you may have about the treatment plan and what your goal is to be achieved from therapy.  Many therapists will provide a complimentary consultation.

Crisis Intervention

The National Suicide Hotline provides support for those in distress, in crisis, and having suicidal thoughts.  This is a confidential hotline that is available 24 hours a day and 7 days a week.

Suicide & Crisis Center provides crisis support and mental health screenings for the youth.

Nonprofit Mental Health Organizations

The Family Advocacy Center provides free counseling to the city’s youths and families.  They also offer group counseling and educational classes.

Metrocare Services provides behavioral health services to adults and children.

The Promise House offers counseling to teens and their families.  Their services also include crisis support and emergency shelter.

The Counseling Place provides professional individual and family counseling for children, adolescents, adults, and victims of crime.  Services are on a sliding scale and free for crime victims.

My Resource Center delivers outpatient mental health and substance abuse services for youth, adults, and seniors.  They also specialize in counseling and support for the LGBT+ community.  Medication management is available and they offer a complimentary assessment.

Behavioral Health Hospitals

Dallas Behavioral Healthcare Hospital provides inpatient psychiatric care for adolescents and adults.  They offer dual diagnosis treatment, a detox program, Partial Hospital Program (PHP), and intensive outpatient care.

Medical City Green Oaks Hospital ranks in the top 5% of all behavioral health hospitals in patient satisfaction.  They provide inpatient and outpatient care.
