Child meeting with provider via telemedicine

Program Description:
Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine (TCHATT) is a statewide program that gives schools access to mental health providers via telemedicine and telehealth to help children and youth at no cost. The UTRGV offers the TCHATT program to schools in South Texas.

TCHATT provides short-term school-based access to telemedicine and telehealth visits with a mental health professional for children and youth identified by school personnel. The role of TCHATT is to provide initial intervention and assessment of students and referral if needed. With TCHATT, school personnel can consult with mental health providers including psychiatrists, psychologists, and licensed clinical social workers. With an early intervention component, TCHATT offers psychoeducation for students, families, and school personnel.
