In 2000, Tejas was founded by a unique joint-venture  between Austin Travis County Integral Care, Capital Area Behavioral Health and Cenpatico (previously IMH/IMHS) as a Texas Uniform Unincorporated Nonprofit Association (TUUNA) under state law. Tejas officially became a behavioral health organization certified by the Texas State Board of Medical Examiners pursuant to Section 162 of the Medical Practice Act.
