Being seen and understood are at the forefront of JPS Health Network’s mission to support better and healthier lives. Earning trust is a critical step for the JPS Behavioral Health team as they care for patients on their journey to wellness and recovery.
Zelia Baugh, Executive Vice President of Behavioral Health, emphasizes that removing the stigma from behavioral health conversations is key. What follows is a patient’s gratitude for acceptance and assistance across all levels of the care continuum.
“When they start coming out of the shadows and start talking about it, they realize they’re not the only ones,” Baugh said. “There’s hope and help.”
About JPS Behavioral Health Services

Trinity Springs Pavilion (TSP) is the inpatient psychiatric facility on the JPS Main Campus. This 24/7 hospital-based, recovery-focused program provides short-term treatment, comprehensive psychiatric evaluation, case management, recreational therapy, medication management, and peer support services. Patients are provided with the needed tools to help them on their wellness journey.

JPS is always ready for those seeking behavioral health assistance. The Behavioral Health team is here to ensure patients are seen and heard during their care and recovery journey.
The JPS Bond Program will support expanded behavioral health care for current and future generations of Tarrant County patients.
