We have all been feeling the stress of recent events (e.g., pandemic, election, finances, etc.).  Studies show how the holidays can provide even more additional stress.  We wanted to share some work provided by one of our Police Commissioners. He spent some time researching and identified professional mental healthcare services that are available for residents of Harris County and the Villages.  The following non-exhaustive list is offered:

  • "Harris County" - Offers local mental health care services that are available 24/7. Services can be accessed by dialing 211.
  • "Crisis Intervention" - Offers free confidential consultation (anonymous) crisis and suicide prevention 24 hours a day.  Call 832-416-1177.
  • "Chapelwood United Methodist Church" - Has a program called "Stephen Ministries".  They have 40 trained and certified members.  Stephen Ministries are lay congregation members trained to provide one-to-one care to those experiencing a difficult time in life, such as grief, divorce, job loss, chronic or terminal illness, or relocation.  They are local community members. Contact Pamela Moore, at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 713- 354-4480.
  • "Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church" - Offers professional counseling to members and the community.  Individuals facing issues that may seem insurmountable like anger, anxiety, loneliness, guilt, low self-esteem.  They focus on teaching coping strategies.  Call 713-490-0931.
  • "National Suicide Prevention Lifeline" – Call 800-273-8255, 24/7.  They offer an Intensive Outpatient Treatment and Services. 

These five resources, in our area, provide tremendous support for anyone in crisis.  Additionally, more information about “Emotional Wellbeing During the COVID-19 Outbreak” may be found using the follow link:

Chief Ray Schultz shared that we have a great team of first responders, and we assist our employees with their mental healthcare as we realize that no one is immune. Mental healthcare is nothing to be afraid of and should not be kept in the shadows. Talk with your family about mental health and the challenges of today. Remember that help is only a phone call away whether it is one of the phone numbers above or call us at 713-365-3700, we do care.   Let’s get through this year, a vaccine is around the corner, the election season will pass, and the economy will rebound. Our parents and grandparents lived through the Great Depression and World War II and taught us how to get through tough times. This is our generation’s international crisis that we will defeat and come out as they did: better, stronger and even more resilient.
