The Children’s Crisis Unit helps Bexar County residents between the ages of 4 and 17 who experience significant mental health issues. The Crisis Unit takes referrals from schools, law enforcement, mental health facilities, hospitals, and local mental health partners. A family may also bring a child in on a walk-in basis for immediate crisis concerns.
By working with schools, parents and others involved in children’s lives, we can identify and treat behavioral health disorders early. By addressing problems, we can help a child learn how to manage his or her illness, prevent costly crises and enable the child to get on track with peers, achieve academic success and lead a productive, independent life.
Though every child learns at a different pace, sometimes they encounter conditions that pose developmental delays. The Center for Health Care Services ECI program provides assessment, therapy and other assistance you need to help your baby and your family learn to navigate around the challenges.
Foster families provide primary or respite care for children who need a safe, stable environment. Your consistent, caring presence and skilled teaching can help reduce trauma and help a child return to healthy, productive growth.
