Removing Barriers to Prosperity
The Center for Youth Mental Health is a program of the Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences established through a grant from the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation. It envisions a mental health system that truly meets the developmental needs and goals of adolescents and young adults.
The center works alongside partners to strengthen relationships among local, state and community-based initiatives to identify gaps and systemic barriers that prevent adolescents and young adults from getting the appropriate care at the right time and place.
The center aims to ensure coordinated, effective, right-sized care is easily accessible in Central Texas to support adolescents in becoming healthy, productive and independent adults.
