Children & Adolescent Services


Hill Country MHDD Centers serves families with children and adolescents, ages 3 through 17, who exhibit significant behavioral and/or emotional difficulties. We work closely with the family and child/youth to help strengthen and empower families to improve functioning and quality of life. We are committed to providing comprehensive services in a trauma-sensitive environment that promotes safety and healing.



Some of the services offered include:

Counseling – Cognitive behavioral therapy focused on reducing or eliminating symptoms of emotional issues and improve daily living.

Family Case Management – Activities to assist child/youth or caregiver in gaining and coordinating access to needed care and services based on the child/youth’s needs.

Family Partner – Experienced parents of children with serious emotional disturbances who provide mentoring and support to the child/youth’s primary caregivers.

Family Training – Training provided to primary caregivers to help manage and cope with the child’s emotional or behavioral difficulties.

Parent Support Group – Routinely scheduled support and informational meetings for primary caregivers.

Crisis Respite Services – Short term residential crisis services to youth with low risk of harm to self or others. Respite services are provided in a traditional home environment with 24-hour supervision. Activities are individualized to target and alleviate the immediate challenges youth and/or family are experiencing.

Skills Training and Development – Training provided to a child/youth to address symptoms that interfere with functioning. This service provides an opportunity for the youth/child to learn and improve upon skills they need to function as appropriately and independently as possible.

Youth Empowerment Services Program – A program designed to provide comprehensive and coordinated wraparound services built on the unique needs of both the child and the family in an effort to support family goals.
