Our Children… Our Future… Our Mission.
Kids in today’s world face ever-increasing pressure and challenges. Neighborhood violence, poverty, homelessness, abuse, neglect, and disturbed family relationships are all persistent psychological adversities that can place youth at increased risk for psychiatric disorders.
Without proper intervention at-risk youth become increasingly vulnerable to social isolation, alcohol and drug abuse, depression, and even suicide. This is where we can help. The Helen Farabee Centers’ Child and Adolescent programs provide a wide array of counseling and therapy services specially structured to meet the needs of at-risk youth and their families, including:
Realizing that any effective strategy must include everyone involved with the young person, we have developed a number of programs that work with the family unit as a whole, including family counseling and family education seminars.
When appropriate, we also reach out to educators to help them understand the specific challenges being faced by the student so they can develop effective strategies for the classroom.
We also assure referrals to other area agencies and service providers are made whenever such referrals are in the best interest of the youth and their family.
As with all Center programs, Child and Adolescent services are available to residents who reside in our 19-county service area and who fall within the Texas Department of State Health Services guidelines for child and adolescent priority population. The Center accepts Medicare, Medicaid, and most forms of private health insurance. For persons who are not eligible for health coverage, fees will be assessed on the basis of proof of a family’s complete income, with no one being denied services due to an inability to pay.
