A new pediatric mental health in-patient facility debuts

The Clarity Child Guidance Center in San Antonio has opened a new in-patient facility for pediatric mental health patients on the Northeast Side. The Methodist Healthcare Ministries Living Unit, which was officially unveiled on Tuesday, is designed to accommodate children between the ages of three and 17 who require mental health services.

The new facility features an eight-room pediatric psychiatric intensive care unit, which will provide specialized care to children in need. The unit is equipped with private rooms, a secure courtyard, and ample space for children to receive treatment. This facility is part of Phase 1 of the Center’s Expansion Project, which was initiated in response to the growing demand for child mental health services, particularly in the wake of the pandemic.

The Heroes Campaign raised $7 million for this project, which allowed for the renovation of the kitchen at the facility. This newly renovated kitchen will provide meals to patients and their families during their stay at the center.

The opening of this new facility represents a significant step towards providing specialized care for pediatric mental health patients in the San Antonio area. By expanding their services, the Clarity Child Guidance Center is working to meet the needs of children and adolescents who require mental health support. This new facility marks an important milestone in the Center’s mission to offer high-quality care to those who need it most.
