Geographic areas served: South Texas

Programs: Southwest Mental Health Center serves short term acute care patients in a 52-bed psychiatric facility located on an attractive Texas hill country campus in the South Texas Medical Center. Patients range in age from 4 to 17 and are hospitalized for an average of slightly less than 7 days. During that time, the patients are assessed, treatment plans developed, medications assessed and initiated or discontinued, and therapy started.Partial hospitalization/day treatment may be used as a follow-up to inpatient care or as a substitute for it. Medical supervision is similar to that for inpatient care, but can be for a longer period of time, with the patient residing at home during the treatment. Any of the levels of care may be followed by outpatient treatment for some length of time. Outpatient services are available on site, or the patient may return to the original referral source or another treatment provider.

To help children, adolescents and families overcome the disabling effects of mental illness and improve their ability to function successfully at home, at school, and in the community.
