History of Generation Wellness Coalition

The 2010 Dallas County Community Health Needs Assessment and Health Improvement Plan, better known as CHNA/HIP, identified mental health, substance abuse, access to care and obesity as the four main issues needing to be addressed in Dallas County. Per survey responses, 52% of Dallas County residents believed that mental health should be a priority; yet 47% were not aware of any mental health resources in the county and 70.9% of Dallas County residents believed that substance abuse should be a priority, yet 49.6% were unaware of resources to address the issue.

 

Members of the Dallas County public and private Mental Health sectors joined together to form a Mental Health Workgroup to begin addressing concerns surrounding mental health in Dallas County and members of the substance abuse treatment community developed a substance abuse work group. There were two additional work groups developed focused on obesity and access to care. The mental health work group and substance abuse work group were both aware of federal changes being implemented in the Affordable Care Act, and state changes advocating for collaboration and a continuous comprehensive integrated systems of care that was focused on being multi-occurring capable and treating the whole person.

 

With this intent in mind, in 2012, the mental health group and substance abuse work group joined together and in 2013 the name was changed to Generation Wellness Coalition to encourage a new generation of hope and well being.
