SIMS has a network of over 130 providers that provide services to SIMS’ clients at a vastly reduced rate from the average rates for the area. SIMS maintains a full array of treatment options and clients are guided to the treatment that best suits their needs by SIMS clinical staff.
The SIMS Clinical team provides comprehensive case management for each client and their loved ones. This includes, but is not limited to, providing psychoeducation to help the client make educated decisions about their own behavioral healthcare, offering support to the loved ones of the clients as needed, assisting the client in navigating other complex service systems such as resources for homelessness and physical healthcare and coordinating care of each client to ensure that the client is receiving the best care for their particular set of circumstances.
In 2018, SIMS added a focus on prevention and education through our Music Venue Trainings. The core curriculum has three modules: Mental Health 101, Substance Use Recovery 101 w/ Naloxone Training (facilitated in partnership with Communities for Recovery) and SAFE Bar (facilitated in partnership with the Sexual Assault Response and Resource Team).
To be eligible for SIMS services, you must have earned some degree of income through the music industry in the past 12 months. You must also reside in one of the following counties: Travis, Bastrop, Williamson, Burnet, Blanco, Hays or Caldwell.
SIMS also covers dependent family members of musicians and music industry professionals.
We operate on a sliding scale, so that cost doesn’t become a barrier to SIMS clients receiving help.
SIMS is not a 24-Hour crisis line. If you are in crisis, please call 512-472-HELP or 911.
