What is mental illness?
Mental illness is a medical disease that may disrupt a person’s thinking, feelings, moods, and ability to relate to others. These symptoms can be controlled through strategies which may include rehabilitative services and medical treatments.

Who is eligible to receive mental health services?
StarCare mental health programs serve people who have a diagnosis of severe and persistent mental illness. This “priority population” is served through guidelines set forth by the state of Texas. If a person meets the “priority population” as defined by the illness listed below, the level of services received will depend upon the individual’s level of need.

  • Schizophrenia
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Bipolar disorder

In what ways can StarCare Specialty Health System help?
StarCare Specialty Health System manages a network of services for people with mental illness. Screenings and assessments are free and available to everyone, and psychiatric care is available to individuals determined to be eligible.  All individuals found eligible for services will be given a choice of providers, and be assisted by a service coordinator to develop a plan for services.  Each person eligible is assigned either a service coordinator or case coordinator based on level of need.
