Texas Health and Human Services awarded Integral Care $1,713,944 to deliver School-Based System of Care services in FY2021 and 2022. Through this contract, Integral Care will build on the success of its current CMHG-funded school-based mental health system of care to address critical service gaps for youth in Travis County. The goal of the School-Based System of Care is to deliver coordinated mental health crisis hotline, crisis triage, ISD staff training, rural on-campus student assessment and treatment, and County-wide community-based mental health crisis stabilization services for students and special student foster care populations in Travis County.
Safe Landing, which serves foster care youth with complex behavioral health needs to improve placement and school stability, and crisis stabilization programming will be open to all Travis County students. Due to Travis County’s rapid population growth, crisis response and stabilization programming will need to be mobile and responsive to high-need areas. On-campus programming will focus on rural ISDs in Del Valle, Manor and Pflugerville.
