Providing Team-Based Services to Youth in Crisis
Thursday, Aug. 12, 2021, 1:30 p.m. ET
Mental health symptoms were already common among teens and young adults and have increased as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. And access to crisis care for youth is challenging in many, if not most, parts of the country. To address the need for youth services, the Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine (TCHATT) program at the University of Texas delivers telemedicine services to public school students experiencing a mental health crisis. The program’s team is made up of social workers, psychologists, mental health practitioners, child psychiatrists, and community health workers who work together to assess and triage a student’s needs, provide connections to care, and brief interventions as needed.
This webinar will showcase how the TCHATT team works collaboratively with the student, family, school and community providers, and will showcase opportunities — including new federal resources — that other communities can leverage to replicate this model to meet their local needs.
