The Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine is a school-oriented mental health program servicing children and adolescents in need. A collaboration between the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium and various independent school districts (ISDs) links children in need of mental health services with mental health professionals (licensed professional counselors, psychologists, and psychiatrists).
The Child Psychiatry Access Network is a psychiatrist-led consultation service available at no cost to primary care providers (PCPs) in Texas. This line offers pediatricians and other primary care providers access to psychiatric consultations, continuing medical education resources, and a network of available resources to refer to in the surrounding areas.
Under the guidance and support of the Texas Child Mental Health Care Consortium, TTUHSC El Paso is working to reshape the needs of the community through increased workforce opportunities available to medical residents and fellows.
TTUHSC El Paso will focus their research efforts on two studies centered on depression and suicide, and trauma.
