Overview for Finding Mental Health Resources in Lubbock, Texas

Lubbock, Texas is located in the northwestern part of the state, and it’s the central city in the Lubbock metro. Lubbock is often named as an excellent place to start a business because of the low commercial rent prices and the business-friendly attitude of the city government. It’s the home of Texas Tech University, which is the sixth-largest college in Texas. It’s also where Lubbock High School is, which is often ranked by media outlets like Newsweek as one of the best high schools in the U.S.

Lubbock is part of a region called the Texas High Plains, which is where 80 percent of the state’s grapes used for wine come from.

There are also a number of ranches in and around Lubbock, and the Depot District is where people go for dining, cultural venues, and theaters.

While Lubbock is often considered a great place to live, there are downsides as well. Many of these are related to issues that commonly plague communities throughout the country such as substance abuse and mental health issues.
