Texas Panhandle Launches the Network of Care Portal

Network of Care

The Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance, which supports 26 counties in northwest Texas, has launched the Network of Care for Behavioral Health program to provide comprehensive behavioral-health resources to its service area.

The Texas Panhandle Network of Care (known as the Panhandle Mental Health Guide) “will serve a very large geographic region in Texas that is mostly rural and remote,” said Sridevi Veeramachaneni, executive director of the Panhandle Behavioral Health Alliance, which sponsors and implements the website. “It is our hope that this tool will shift our culture towards early intervention and improve ‘warm hand-offs’ and continuity of care. The access to providers and information will be a lifeline to many people who desperately need services in our mostly rural and remote region.”

The web-based portal includes a database of local programs and services; quick access to local emergency and crisis-intervention programs; as well as a library of more than 30,000 articles, fact sheets and interactive tools.

The Texas Panhandle joins the national Network of Care, which has more than 500 customized, community-based websites in 26 states. During the past two decades, the Network of Care has served more than 30 million people nationwide through its online offerings, which are replicated and custom-designed for any county or state.
