Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine


Texas Child Health Access Through Telemedicine is transforming ACCESS to mental and behavioral healthcare services for children and their families by quickly CONNECTING students to services through telemedicine.

TCHATT is a FREE service that provides short term behavioral health services for children and adolescents by partnering with local school districts to identify students who may be struggling with mental health concerns. Once a child is referred to TCHATT by participating school personnel (e.g., teachers, counselors), TCHATT can offer evidence-based assessment and treatment services targeting a broad range of emotional and behavioral health concerns.

Our Team

Our multidisciplinary team is comprised of child psychiatrists, licensed professional counselors, social workers, and care coordinators. 


  • Mental health assessments 
  • Short-term therapy focused on the top problems identified by the student and parent/legal guardian
  • Psychiatric care and medication management if needed
  • Referrals to long-term treatment providers if necessary

How can my child participate?


If you are interested in obtaining TCHATT services for your child, and your child attends one of our partnered school districts, please speak with your child's school counselor. School counselors will then provide a referral to TCHATT and once received, a TCHATT representative will contact you to provide additional information about our program and schedule your child's first appointment.

If your child's school district is not listed, contact your school counselor to reach out to TCHATT.
