KSAT Community Town Hall - Access to Mental Health Care

May is Mental Health Awareness month

SAN ANTONIO – Getting access to mental health care can be a challenge for anyone, but there are some populations that need additional attention including children with intellectual and developmental disabilities. It can also be a hurdle for children who are transitioning into adulthood or aging out of foster care.

The KSAT Community town hall, which can be viewed in the media player at the top of this article, focused on access to mental health care.

Leigh Waldman spoke with Dr. Sally Taylor, Sr. Vice President Chief of Behavioral Medicine, University Health, Jacob Ulczynski, Sr. Director, Human Services & Agency Coordination, Alamo Area Council of Governments (AACOG) and Brad Benoit, Interim Vice President, Children’s Behavioral Health Services, The Center for Health Care Services.
