Introducing the RTC Project

We are excited to offer this optional pre-conference session for RTC providers!

Join us to learn more about the Residential Treatment Center (RTC) Project! The RTC project a partnership between the Department of Family and Protective Services (DFPS) and the Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) to provide children with intensive mental health care in an RTC setting while their guardian keeps legal responsibility for their child. The goal of the RTC Project is to provide treatment support for families with a child who may otherwise be placed into DFPS conservatorship to have their treatment needs met. Join HHSC Children’s Mental Health team to learn more about opportunities to become a contracted RTC Project provider. Becoming an RTC Project provider means you are part of a statewide network of RTCs who provide trauma-informed and evidence-based care for children with complex mental health needs in a safe environment. The Children’s Mental Health team will also provide an overview of children’s mental health services in Texas and how RTCs can connect children to community based mental health services as part of the transition planning process.

Presenters: Liz Pearson, Manager, and Apryl Rosas, Residential Treatment Center (RTC) Project Coordinator, Children’s Mental Health, Texas Health and Human Services Commission
