Mission Statement

To help children, adolescents, and families overcome the disabling effects of mental illness and improve their ability to function successfully at home, at school, and in the community.


Clarity Child Guidance Center is the only non-profit hospital in South and Central Texas providing pediatric mental health treatment and prevention services to kids as young as three years old. We specialize in the treatment of severe mood, anxiety, and psychotic disorders. As a hospital, we accept a wide range of insurance providers, so it makes us very accessible to families and being able to bill insurance covers a huge portion of our operation costs, but about 6 out of every 10 kids we treat are underinsured or not insured at all. Our mission is to make sure every child receives the mental health treatment they need, so we never turn a child away just because their family can't afford it, and the support of our donors is what bridges that gap and makes it possible for us to see over 8,500 kids from all over Texas every year. We’re very grateful to our community for investing in us for the past 135 years and we look forward to turning kids' lives around with the community’s support long into the future.

My daughter who has ADHD was struggling with so many areas of mental health. Coming to Clarity Child Guidance was a very successful break through. I as a parent got to witness my child live turn around. Thank you for an encouraging and inspiriting future to my daughter whom she graduate from HS 2020.
