The article discusses a study conducted to compare the mortality rate of Public Mental Health Clients (PHMCs) in the 38 Local Mental Health Authorities (LMHAs) of Texas during 2006-2008. It has been informed that mortality rate increased in PHMCs population in comparison to the general population across these three years. It has been concluded that medical care providers in the LMHAs should also give attention on assessment and management of non-psychiatric medical conditions.
