Austin Child Guidance Center
Children’s Mental Health Expansion Initiative
Austin Child Guidance Center offers mental health treatment for children through early intervention, diagnosis and treatment. Impact Austin’s grant will aid the Children’s Mental Health Expansion Initiative, which will allow the organization to hire two new therapists to provide individual, family and group therapy, parenting classes and psychological assessments for Central Texas children. This will increase the number of children and families served at the center by 67%. These therapists will complete a process to qualify for reimbursement for their services from private insurance companies and government agencies, making this one-time investment self-sustaining.
