The Hogg Foundation for Mental Health at the University of Texas, Austin is funding an initiative in the state to help residential treatment centers adopt safer methods to manage the behavior of youth in their care.
The funding will provide the treatment centers with training, information, collaboration, and technical assistance, to help them provide trauma-informed care without the use of restraint and seclusion.
The new initiative will be coordinated by the Texas Network of Youth Services. As of 2010, there were 79 centers licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services that provide care for youth with emotional disturbances.
