The Southeast Alliance Community Care Team is the first concept of its kind on the east side of the DFW region. It will focus on proactive and reactive mental health services for citizens in the communities of Balch Springs, Mesquite, Seagoville, and Sunnyvale. The program’s efforts will include services to check in on residents with a history of mental health issues to ensure they are receiving the treatment and services needed. The team will also help homeless individuals who may not have access to mental health services.
