Austin Child Guidance Center
ACGC Teletherapy Program
Austin Child Guidance Center’s mission is to improve the mental health of children and their families through early intervention, diagnosis, and treatment to help them develop the emotional skills to face life’s challenges.
This grant will support a new teletherapy program to connect clinicians to clients for assessment, intervention, and consultation. Initially planned to start in October 2020, the program launched in early to remove barriers to service and address mental health needs associated with COVID-19.
The Impact Austin grant helped ACGC integrate teletherapy services beginning March 2020. Over 700 children and families were served during the grant cycle year despite mostly being in their homes due to the pandemic.
With help and encouragement from Impact Austin, ACGC also launched a new podcast “THRIVE: Building Resilient Families”. Check it out here: https://www.austinchildguidance.org/news-events/acgc-podcast.html
