University Health System provides inpatient and outpatient Behavioral Health services for adults who also receive their primary medical care from a University provider. We treat your acute symptoms in our hospital and then connect you with community-based programs for follow-up.
On an outpatient basis, your case manager will coordinate services to get you the help you need, whether it’s ongoing medication treatment or counseling.
Young people can experience mental health symptoms as a result of trauma, life stress or other issues. If your child receives his or her primary medical care from one of University’s pediatricians, he or she can be seen by a child and adolescent psychiatrist for psychiatric medication management. If your child has ADHD, he or she can be involved in our outpatient therapy program called PROXIMA.
University Hospital does not offer inpatient psychiatric services for children or adolescents. Instead, we work closely with several facilities to help your child get the care he or she needs.
If your child is having a mental health emergency – especially if he or she has said anything about self-harm – please call 911 or call one of the following psychiatric hospitals:
- Clarity Child Guidance Center: 210-616-0300
- Laurel Ridge Hospital: 210-491-9400
- Nix Behavioral Health Hospital: 210-200-7022
