Informing parents about the value of organizing mental health screenings for their children with regard to: behavioral challenges, suicidal ideation, and the early onset of depression, is very important indeed. To that end, the founder of the Elevate Healthcare North Texas Mental Health Clinic, Margie Barilla, plays her role in helping society, by educating parents about the differences between psychiatric hospitals and outpatient programs.

What’s on Offer?

Elevate Healthcare has conducted in depth research to determine the patterns of the horrendous school shootings which have taken place all across America. Moreover, it is offering a tangible solution for the Texan community, by providing free assessment reviews. The latter are scheduled at convenient times for students, and during the course of the sessions, pupils have a chance to open up about subjects which they may have been holding in. For example, they may not have felt comfortable bringing up emotional distress, the potential risk to harm themselves/ others, or bulling experiences, with their school principals, family or friends.

When patients go through the programming, they do not have to join a waiting list. They are free to take part in a fully inclusive service which incorporates: family therapy, individual therapy, group therapy, and direct access to the psychiatrist, right away.

Elevate’s mission is: “to educate parents and maximize the outpatient setting prior to admission to inpatient facility, [thereby] alleviating an institutionalized experience. In the event that a higher level of care is needed, Elevate refers out to vetted resources reducing diversion or unavailability of treatment”.

Extensive Support

Barilla notes that: “Mental health screenings should be required in the same way as school physicals. Imagine the positive life changes with students taking coping skills into adulthood. Preparing our students for semester screenings, we are providing extensive support for north Texas school districts”. Being able to take such crucial skills into adulthood is highly beneficial, and the students who have learnt coping methods may be less likely to suffer from mental health problems later in life.

More About Elevate Healthcare

In just a minimal amount of time, which is 6 months, to be exact, this organization has empowered more than 580 students aged 5 – 17,  by giving them complementary mental health assessments. Moreover, there are far bigger plans in the works, which go above and beyond Elevate’s original strategy to cover 17 North Texan regions. – A spokesperson stated: “In the last six months with the high demand from providers and parents, changes have been made to expand throughout Texas”.

The licensed clinicians at Elevate are reputed to: “go above and beyond to serve clients with service excellence and quality client care. Regardless of the beginning challenges of insurance companies dictating client treatment or delayed reimbursements, [the] founder and utilization review coordinator continue to be advocates for our current and returning clients”. Clearly, these matters are extremely important to potential patients.
