Mental Health Services

If you’re experiencing a mental health crisis now, call our 24-Hour Crisis Hotline at 866-729-3848.

Your mental health is as important as your physical health. As the mental health authority for Galveston and Brazoria counties, Gulf Coast Center can help if you are having a mental health crisis now or need ongoing support to help you manage an ongoing mental illness.

Our mental health services include a 24-hour crisis hotline, emergency and stabilization services, inpatient and outpatient psychiatric care, counseling, and skills and education training. We serve adults, children, and adolescents.

We coordinate patient care activities with other partner community agencies in order to provide well-rounded care. Our goal is to know and understand the needs and preferences of those we serve. Communicating and providing care at the right time and with the right partners helps increase safe, proper, and effective care. Services provided are tailored to each person’s needs.
