Family Care Center is continuing its support of Travis County residents with the opening of its newest Central Austin location, increasing access to integrated mental health services within the metro area.
This follows the opening of Family Care Center's Pflugerville clinic in early August and its first area clinic in Round Rock. The clinics serve the Family Care Center goal of providing community-based mental healthcare throughout Greater Austin.
Austin's fast growth puts greater stress on the need for mental healthcare. Travis County was one of the top five U.S. counties for numeric gains in housing between July 2021 and July 2022, with a population of 27,927. Cities with higher populations and larger metropolitan areas like Austin have higher rates of most mental health problems—including a 40 percent higher risk of depression—when compared to that of rural areas.
To further serve the Greater Austin area, a fourth Family Care Center clinic in Cedar Park also opened with a grand opening celebration set for later this year.
