emotionaldisturbance175.jpgThe Hogg Foundation at the University of Texas at Austin is funding a new statewide initiative to help residential treatment centers adopt safer, more effective tools to reduce or eliminate seclusion and restraint practices.

 

"Training, information, collaboration and technical assistance to residential treatment centers will begin this fall and will be coordinated by the nonprofit Texas Network of Youth Services (TNOYS) with a three-year, $589,172 grant from the Hogg Foundation. In 2010, 79 centers licensed by the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services provided 24-hour care and treatment for 1,559 children and youth with emotional disturbances."
