HOW PAVILION HELPS
Persistent mental illness and substance abuse can isolate a person and their families from normal life.
1 in 5 American adults suffer from mental illness and/or substance abuse
This translates into roughly 90,000 citizens in Williamson County.
Lost wages and productivity, expensive hospitalizations, homelessness, and criminal justice involvement add up to an estimated annual $300 million dollar impact for Williamson County.
Because Texas is in last place among states in spending on mental health/substance abuse, we focus our state's resources on hospitalization, rehab, and crisis care.
There are very few long term recovery options to help people find ways to get out of this vicious cycle and become a productive, independent, happy part of our community again
Not only does this situation often puts unbearable pressure on our families and communities, there is the economic cost to our county as well.
