Emergence Health Network
El Paso, TX. 79924
In 2016 EHN celebrated its 50th Anniversary and although we have undergone some name changes throughout the years, our commitment to our residents has remained the same. In 1963, President John F. Kennedy signed the Community Mental Health Act which established mental health centers in communities. It helped people with mental illness and/or IDD who were institutionalized move back into their communities by creating Local Mental Health Authorities. In 1966, the Local Mental Health Authority (LMHA) was opened in El Paso and Emergence Health Network born. EHN is now one of 39 LMHA in Texas.
