TAMFT's Response to Governor Abbott's Letter

On August 6th, 2021, Governor Greg Abbott sent a letter to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services regarding gender-affirming care for children and adolescents. In response, the TAMFT board signed a joint letter with other Texas mental health professional organizations, communicating our collective concern for how these changes would directly and significantly impact our ability to practice.

We believe this action aligns with our vision statement which includes being, “dedicated to the enhancement of individual and family well-being through the promotion and advancement of marriage and family therapy practices,” and, “working to ensure that MFTs are an integral part of the evolving health care system,” (Article II, Section 1 of bylaws).
