Finding the right care for your mental health is important. We offer behavioral health navigators to help you find a therapist, psychiatrist, support group or other resources. To talk with a behavioral health navigator, call 512-324-2039.

If you or a loved one is experiencing depression, anxiety, mood swings, difficulty with sobriety, or other emotional difficulties that are getting in the way of living a meaningful life, mental health specialists can help. Our groups meet throughout the day and evening to provide scheduling flexibility for those who want to stay involved in school, work, or other activities while seeking treatment. We offer convenient locations throughout the Austin area.
