Clarity Child Guidance Center

Clarity Child Guidance Center is the only not-for-profit organization in South Texas providing crisis assessment, inpatient, outpatient and day treatment mental health care to children ages 3-17.

One in five children nationwide experience a mental, behavioral or emotional problem. That’s 80,000 children in Bexar County alone. Without proper treatment, children with mental illness are twice as likely to abuse drugs and alcohol and twice as likely to end up in the juvenile justice system. Half of them will drop out of school and many will attempt suicide.

Clarity Child Guidance Center (CGC) is the only not-for-profit organization in South Texas providing crisis assessment, inpatient, outpatient and day treatment mental health care to children ages 3-17.

Clarity CGC offers the region's largest concentration of child and adolescent psychiatrists, with its onsite affiliation with Southwest Psychiatric Physicians. In addition, the center serves as a teaching hospital for The University of Texas Health Science Center San Antonio and Baylor College of Medicine. Clarity CGC’s treatment network includes an eight-acre campus in the South Texas Medical Center with a 66-bed hospital and six-bed Crisis Assessment Center, as well as a Clarity Child Guidance Clinic located on the West Side of San Antonio .

Clarity CGC is also committed to removing the stigma often associated with mental illness and has created the One in Five Minds campaign to raise awareness and educate the community, parents, professionals, and leaders about mental illness. Learn more and take the pledge at 1in5minds.org.

Clarity CGC is a United Way agency and serves children in need, regardless of their family’s ability to pay.
