Youth and Family Mental Health Outpatient Services

At Texana Center, we assess, treat and coordinate care for children with serious and persistent mental illness.  We help children and families uncover their path towards improved quality of life. We provide medication management, counseling and care coordination, family partners, and other specialized programs and services. All services provided are built on evidence-based interventions aimed at promoting recovery and resilience. The services your child will receive will be determined by an initial intake assessment along with their diagnosis. The goals that you and your child establish, with the help of their case manager or clinical team will also determine more specifically the areas of focus.

Who is eligible to receive services?

  • Must be a resident of Austin, Colorado, Fort Bend, Matagorda, Waller, and Wharton counties.
  • Children aged 3-17 diagnosed with a severely emotionally disturbed mental illness as evidenced by major functioning impairments in school, home, and related settings
