Menninger is committed to enhancing mental healthcare delivery in the Houston area, particularly in underserved areas.
BridgeUp at Menninger
BridgeUp at Menninger aims to promote innovative collaborations among multi-sector community organizations to produce measurable improvement in the mental health status of communities, with a particular focus on vulnerable adolescents in Greater Houston schools,
through the funding of one-year grants.
The Gathering Place
Free vocational skills training, a wellness program, employment assistance, and recreational and social activities are available for the more than 300 members of The Gathering Place
, a psychosocial clubhouse for adults with persistent mental illness. The Gathering Place is located less than a mile from The Clinic.
Texas Children’s Pediatrics
Menninger clinicians treat and assess children and adolescents at a pediatric medical practice owned by Texas Children’s Pediatrics
, a subsidiary of Texas Children’s Hospital. This practice is located in an underserved area. Our partnership with Texas Children's Pediatrics began in 2010.
Community Healthcare Needs Assessment
Menninger provides mental health services to adolescents and adults from the local, regional and national communities. Our Board of Directors approved the most recent Community Healthcare Needs Assessment in June 2016, which was followed by the Directors' approval of the Implementation Strategy in October 2016. These reports reflect the portrait of mental health needs and outline how Menninger aligns its services to help respond to the communities' needs.
