Mission

Advancing the health of North Texas through education, research, prevention, and personalized integrated HIV care.

Notes from the nonprofit

If Prism Health North Texas did not exist, the community’s capacity to treat and prevent HIV infections would be substantially reduced. More than 2200 HIV positive individuals would not receive medical care. The reason the HIV pandemic is so much less apparent today than it was in the late 1980’s is because there are agencies like AIDS Arms performing vital services. Thankfully, scientific advances in medications allow patients to live nearly normal lives. However, complacency remains a threat to public health. The funds received through charitable donations are of critical importance in allowing Prism Health North Texas to enhance its services and sustain our infrastructure. Most of Prism Health North Texas’ revenue is restricted to specific services as defined by grant deliverables and requirements; thus, very few grants support the necessary administrative infrastructure that is essential for ongoing viability and sustainability.

Current patients receiving medical care at PHNTX have access to behavioral healthcare services. The behavioral healthcare team is made up of counselors and specialists in psychiatry who work as part of the HIV medical team.

Services include:

Mental health and substance misuse assessment
Individual, group, and walk-in counseling
Psychiatric medication evaluation and ongoing medication management

Prism Health North Texas is proud to announce its merger with Community Dental Care, the largest nonprofit provider of quality, routine, and preventative dental care and dental health education to low-income individuals in Texas. By combining dental and medical care under a single community health organization, we can ensure both vital needs are better resourced and managed. We want to serve the North Texas community by filling the dental care gap and ensuring uninsured or under-insured patients have access to the quality dental care they need.

In the City of Dallas alone, more than 300,000 children and adults do not have access to dental treatment. Patients who do not have any dental insurance may qualify for services under our grants or discount plans.
