Lone Star Depression Challenge

Improving Access, Diagnosis, and Treatment

The CDRC is participating in a collaboration with Meadows Mental Health Policy Institute, winner of the statewide Lone Star Depression Challenge, whose purpose is to scale an innovative, proven, transformative solution that builds healthier, stronger communities throughout Texas to improve the quality of life for all Texans.



The Lone Star Depression Challenge responds by combining and expanding three proven programs to

  • reduce barriers for all Texans with depression
  • detect their needs earlier (Cloudbreak)
  • care for them more effectively
