Mental health practices throughout Travis County and beyond have been having to adjust their operations due to the spread of the coronavirus, and that is no different for those in the Lake Travis-Westlake area. Many are still open, but all of the professionals contacted had to modify their operations in some way, with the most prominent change being a switch to teletherapy. Community Impact Newspaper is regularly contacting Lake Travis-Westlake mental health professionals to learn the latest updates on how they are managing as more calls for social distancing are made at the regional, state and federal levels. The latest updates can be found below. If the business listed on the corresponding map is still pending, the Lake Travis-Westlake editorial team has reached out and is still waiting for information.

Don't see your mental health care practice or one you want to know about in the Lake Travis-Westlake area on the list? Readers and mental health professionals can share updates with the Lake Travis-Westlake editorial team by emailing ltwnews@communityimpact.com. This list will be updated as information is forthcoming.
