Upgrading Aging Mental Hospital To Brain Health Campus

A replacement facility is being considered for an aging mental hospital in Austin, and a project team has been assembled in anticipation of approval for state funding later in the year. The Texas Health and Human Services Commission and The University of Texas at Austin's Dell Medical School are partnering with community groups like the National Alliance for Mental Illness to lead the proposed redesign of Austin State Hospital. The state-run mental hospital campus serves 75 counties spanning an area the size of Ohio.
