2 | The Harris Center for Mental Health and IDD
Federally Qualified Health Centers that partner to address the needs of patients with chronic physical and mental health problems . Integrating mental health , substance abuse and primary care services produces the best outcomes and proves the most effective approach to caring for people with multiple healthcare needs .
Adolescents in the foster care system who have severe mental illness received services from the Harris County CPS Transition Project . Adolescents in the foster care system often are involved in multiple types of care systems , have histories of severe mental illness or dual diagnoses , and are at risk for homelessness , criminal justice involvement or psychiatric hospitalizations . Engaging these adolescents during this transition helps to reduce factors leading to crisis .
We served an average of 10,300 adults and 2,600 children and adolescents each month in our outpatient clinics . We extended employment and housing services at all four clinics and developed the largest Youth Empowerment Services ( YES ) Waiver program in Texas providing a continuum of community based services and supports for high-risk children and adolescents , ages 3-18 , with serious emotional disturbances so that they may live in the community with their families , rather than placed in out-of- home programs .
