Youth and Family Mental Health Specialized Programs

We deliver life-changing mental health specialized services to those who need them most.

Coordinated Specialty Care for First Episode Psychosis

Coordinated Specialty Care (CSC) is designed to meet the needs of individuals with an early onset of psychosis. Research shows that if an individual gets the right help within the first year, there is a good chance they will learn to manage the illness and live a more normal life. CSC emphasizes shared decision-making and a recovery-focused approach. The CSC model is team-based and provides a comprehensive selection of treatment and support services to keep individuals on the path to recovery.
Coordinated Specialty Care is for individuals ages 15-30 who have a psychotic disorder diagnosed within the past two years.

Youth Empowerment Services (YES) Waiver

The Health and Human Services Commission received approval by the federal government to implement a 1915c Medicaid Waiver. The program, called Youth Empowerment Services or YES, allows more flexibility in the funding of intensive community based services and supports for children with serious emotional disturbances and their families.

Texana Center and YES expect to:

  • Provide a more complete community based services plan with supports for children with serious emotional disturbances (SED)
  • Prevent or reduce inpatient psychiatric admissions
  • Prevent entry or recidivism into the foster care system or juvenile justice system
  • Improve the overall potential of youth and their families
Only parents or the legally authorized representative (LAR) can call for placement on the interest list and the assessment appointment.

Call the Inquiry Hotline at (281) 239-1485 and press option 1.

Medicaid eligibility is determined based on child need and not family income.

Criminal Justice Involved Projects

Juvenile TCOOMMI Project

The Juvenile Project, called the Turnaround Program, is a joint effort with Fort Bend County Juvenile Probation offering behavioral healthcare services, intensive in-home therapy with the youth and family and probation supervision for youth who are first encountering the juvenile justice system. The program works to strengthen families, help families develop appropriate coping skills, and build support systems to promote healthy parenting and family support in addition to treating the youth’s mental illness. The goal is to prevent further encounters with the juvenile justice system and stabilize and continue treatment of the youth’s mental illness.
