EHN Mission

Emergence Health Network ensures superior recovery-based services for mental health, developmental disability and related conditions for the people of El Paso County. Investing in people to achieve specific, measurable results is an essential part of community development. Emergence Health Network is committed to investing in services that work, making a positive, measurable difference in people’s lives; and helping communities. Stable families mean safer neighborhoods, a more productive work force, higher contributing citizens, residents.

Emergence Health Network (EHN) will lead behavioral and developmental services in the El Paso region ensuring access to quality services, advocating for a better quality of life, and providing strength, hope and recovery for persons with mental illness and developmental disabilities. Social problems, like poverty, drug abuse and violence, destroy families and communities and leave children emotionally damaged, unprepared to learn and robbed of their full potential. Emergence Health Network assists Texas’ most vulnerable citizens – Texans with either or both severe and persistent mental illness and developmental disabilities – and helps individuals and families solve their problems and take care of themselves.

“It is rewarding to watch Emergence Health Network continue to grow and serve more and more community members in need. I’m very proud of the collaboration that is taking place between El Paso County and EHN, and we’re honored to be working together to create a stronger mental health system for our region. There is still much work to do in our community, but I have no doubt that the work being done at EHN is creating a wider safety net that will assist a greater number of El Pasoans who need access to their care. Our thanks goes to the dedicated staff and leadership at EHN who work tirelessly to serve their community. El Paso County looks forward to the continued success of EHN and we hope to grow our collaboration in the future.”

“University Medical Center of El Paso, serving the El Paso region for 100 years, supports Emergence Health Network (EHN) as the community leader in addressing the mental health and intellectual disabilities issues that many of our families face. The demands are great but through the dedication of EHN’s leadership and staff members, our community is able to receive these much needed services. Through their collaborative efforts, the EHN team has been successful in moving forward many critical initiatives that help to ensure the delivery of high quality mental health services for our community.”
